Deer Family Outing - with Fawn!
Last evening four deer and a fawn came out of the back woods and walked around. It was so exciting to see the fawn! We see these deer all of the time and thought one probably has a fawn. This one looks like it is only days old. Its fur under the spots is much darker than the adults'. It was chasing Uncle Buck, the young buck that hangs around (see previous post). The pictures aren't that good because it was getting dark and I had to take the pictures through the screen window. They went down into the pasture and played around but my camera battery went dead.
Rabbits cookin' coffee -- that's what the locals call it. But here in this little hollow in East Tennessee, when the hills surrender their misty hostage to reveal the stalwart cedars growing by the stream in our pasture, I know there is no place on earth I would rather be. The welcome mat is out! Come and sit on the porch and chat with me awhile!
