A doe with older fawns (one doe and one buck) were browsing on black raspberry leaves.
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.
I looked out the patio window and saw a giant eyeball looking through the gap in the privacy fence. The deer are brazen!
This tattered moth hung out all day on the patio window.
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.
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.
Painted Lady Butterfly
Great Spangled Fritillary Butterfly
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.
The babies are finally starting to bloom. There are also more day lilies budding. Hopefully our neighborhood doe won’t clear cut them.
