A small measure of cuteness on a hot summer day

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).

In the clover

One of the local whitetail does, whom we call “Lazy Z” because she has on her left side a small scar that looks like a letter Z tipped on its side, has a set of twins. Several times now she has left them for us to babysit for a couple hours while she has business somewhere else. They stay in a patch of clover that we let grow tall just outside out kitchen window. These photos are of one of them today in the clover patch waiting for mom to return.

This little one just showed up this morning, possibly having been born in our little canyon within the last week.
