Family Gathering

I have watched over the last couple of days as the bucks have been arriving.  The doe with the fawns at first chased the bucks away but they would not go far and just stand and watch.  Gradually, the doe have permitted the bucks to come closer.  It makes me think that these are perhaps the fathers of the fawns.  One of the fawns attempted to engage one of the bucks in play but no-go.

Looks like lots of deer around your place, Paula. Love seeing those little ones.

How great to be able to see them during daylight!

Yes Gladys, there are quite a few deer and more added this year. As the fall season approaches the bucks come around more openly.

Hi Liz, Yes, it is fun to be able to watch them during the day. They have been exceptionally active of the last two weeks. They seem to sense that fall is on the way.
