Mama Deer and Twin Fawns Then and Now

 Since springtime we have been seeing a mama deer and a single fawn quite frequently frolicking in the backyard.  One lucky morning I happened to spot a mother and 2 very active twins only about 30 yards from the back of the barn.  They were so cute.  The one baby stuck close to mom while the other kept running back and forth along the mown path as if to say "look at me, I have legs!"  The mom kept a watchful eye on me as I was able to snap these photos.  Beyond sweet!  I think there actually were two moms and their respective 2 sets of twins.

Now that it is fall is here the families are still very much around and often travel together.  Seeing the fawns all grown up is quite nice.   Kind of hard to see so click on it to blow it up if you can.

All I ask is stay away from my baby trees (hence the burlap wraps for the winter...learned my lesson last year)!
