Sweet little ones, aren’t they! This is one of a pair of twins whose mother brought them to eat some of the little patch of clover we have right next to the house. I suspect it’s the same doe who has done this every summer for the past three years.
Extremely pretty face … great profile picture. Thanks for sharing it …
This is my first summer without having deer in my yard on a daily basis, I miss them. I think it has to do with the roadwork going on in the gravel pit next to me … hoping they are almost done so the deer return.
Oh, I saw a pretty little face looking just like this standing on the side of a busy highway the other day, looking quite lost and all alone. I sure hope it didn’t get hit by a car. In that respect, your pretty little face here is in no dangers of that.
Sad, isn’t it that in many places the highway and the people who drive too fast on it are their greatest hazard. We are pretty close to a highway too and the deer have to dross it daily to drink at the river. This little one and its sibling and its mother drink at a tub that we keep full and hopefully will not be on the highway.
I love their dappled coats – they remind me of Hopkin’s poem, “Pied Beauty”, which begins (if I recall) “Glory be to God for dappled things…” How wonderful that you get to see them so often. Another good reason for living where you do!
Yes I do, but this was taken at about 40 feet with my little P & S. I’ve been taking it on the tougher hikes too and have been surprised at how well it can do some things. It sure isn’t a DSLR though, but 1/2 pound vs 4 pounds plus extra lenses when you’re hiking…
