A small measure of cuteness on a hot summer day

Whitetail fawn

Every once in awhile every summer a whitetail doe brings her fawn (or fawns) into my side yard for some free babysitting. She will leave for several hours and then return for the little one. She must somehow understand that the baby will be safe here while she is gone and there is plenty of clover to eat and access to a good supply of fresh water (that I always keep for the birds).

Western Rattlesnake Plantain

Rattlesnake Plantain ~ Goodyera oblongifolia

I waited for a long time for the flowers on this small orchid to open but it looks as though they are drying up very quickly. This is a record-high temperature summer here.
