First there was one, then two and yesterday, a third fawn arrived.  The new doe arrived with fawn in tow and became aggressive towards the two doe that had already brought their fawns up.  Even the new fawn came in with an attitude but both were quickly put in their place by the two doe that had already been visiting.

Around noon today I went out and set up the trail camera hoping to get a shot of all three fawns together.  Shortly after 1500 when I put some food out they all arrived.  The old timers arrived first and settled in to eat.  As the newcomers arrived, they came up slowly today.  The old timers stopped eating and watched them carefully as they arrived.

I was able to get one shot on the trail cam of all three fawns.  The new fawn then moved directly in front of the trail cam and blocked all other shots.  The two standing side by side on the left are so close they almost look like one.

The newcomers did not stay long and soon things were back to normal.

Awww...aren't they sweet. Do the deer like your plants in the yard? They used to love my hosta's in Maine.

Hey Gladys, Believe it or not, I don't have too much in the yard that they care to eat plus by giving them a big scoop of corn daily, they don't have the need to come munch on the plants. Yes, they do love the hosta here too but I use Liquid Fence and so far, they have not touched it.

Hey Liz, Yep, I love my trail camera. It definitely lets me gets shots of things I am unable to get with the camera. I sue mine all the time just to sort of track what is going on around the property.
