Doe and Fawns

Doe

Fawns

I knew the mama deer had to have had twins, because a couple of times I’ve found identical, side-by-side indentations in my flower beds, where she’s been stashing them. This was the first time I’d actually seen them, though.

It’s been so long since I used my big camera that I nearly forgot how.

Sometimes the Neighbors Creep on Us

Somebody's watching me...

I looked out the patio window and saw a giant eyeball looking through the gap in the privacy fence. The deer are brazen!

Mr. Groundhog

Groundhog

This guy is unflappable. He will park himself just a foot from my patio and then graze, while Thomas yells at him to get offa his lawn. Mr. Groundhog has zero effs to give.

Turkey Vultures

Turkey Vultures on the Roof

I came home to turkey vultures on the roof and a dead deer in the back field. Thomas was really disappointed when I didn’t let him join in the deer disposal festivities.

I see all the best stuff when I’m outside with Thomas. Last night, it was a meteor. Today it was butterflies visiting my zinnias.

I think the wind just momentarily bent her wing over. I don’t think it was actually damaged.

Baby Zinnia

The babies are finally starting to bloom. There are also more day lilies budding. Hopefully our neighborhood doe won’t clear cut them.

This little moth was a new visitor. I’ve never seen one before.
