Babies of the woods.

Some of the new fawns that arrived this spring. I’ve been trying to determine if they pass by at the same time each day, but so far, no luck with that.

I‘ve captured a few short videos of them romping together, chasing after their mother, etc., with my trail camera, but getting them to load onto my laptop has been a bit of a challenge. You never know, a miracle could happen and I’ll actually get to share them with you.

Don’t leave without us!

These deer were all the way down on the bank of the river, so I was surprised to get a decent shot of any kind. A herd of seven were loosely grouped and these three were stragglers. The deer in the middle is keeping an eye on the rest of the herd that had already worked it’s way down the hill and into the ravine.

Winter on the river.

Late in the afternoon a few days ago, a herd of deer stopped for sips of water from the river and then crossed to the other side.
I’m amazed at how high and how far deer can jump.
If you look closely on the left, you can see the head of the deer next to the yellow arrow. That’s quite a jump! The really amazing part is that they don’t even need a running start.
