And Then There Were Three

I was up and at 'em at first light this morning.
Just in time to catch our resident deer and the new fawns, rambling about the garden.
All sprightly and full of play.
One fawn belongs to another doe, but seems to prefer the company of it's deer cousins.

How beautiful. I know deer can be destructive but I still love them.

Is that black tub a great big water dish for these guys? They sure are beautiful creatures. :-)

Yes DJan, it's a livestock tub.
I moan about the deer eating everything in sight, and we have to fence around any flowers we wish to keep, but they surely are such beautiful creatures :)

If I were a deer I would pick your yard too. They are beautiful, like everything else around your place. I was just looking at your last post, at the flowers. Why do my flowers look hot and dry and flopped over. Yours look like flowers a florist would choose. :) I know it is all the love and care you give them. You create beauty with everything you do.

Those spotted fawns are just precious, hope they don't do damage to your plants.

I just love the deer. This is what I miss most about working. The deer so close by in the yard. It's good that the mom feels safe enough to bring her little ones to your yard for their drinks. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Our deer eat up ur gardens and apples etc. No matter what we do, they get in and eat it. I think a dog is the only answer.

It is nice they can get a good drink of water. The three little ones will grow up quickly.

A deer mother often babysits for other deer mothers. They take turns.
