Twin Fawns

Well, I believe they’re twins: very close to each other in size, and one mama with them only. I had seen them before, but too short only and too far away to really get them on camera. Today, though, I did! They were close to the tall grass above our well. Unfortunately, the cross tree for our bird feeders got in the way sometimes. But that can’t be helped. I didn’t dare to move to a different spot for fear of spooking them. Enjoy this video:

Zwillings Rehkitze

Nun, ich glaube wenigstens, dass es Zwillinge sind: sie sind fast genau gleich groß, und es ist nur eine Mama dabei. Ich hatte sie schon vor ein paar Tagen gesehen, aber nur zu kurz und zu weit weg um sie gut in die Kamera zu kriegen. Heute aber hat’s geklappt! Sie waren nahe bei dem großen Gras über unserem Tiefbrunnen. Leider kommt manchmal der Träger für unsere Vogelfutterhäuschen in die Quere, aber das ist nun mal nicht zu ändern. Ich habe mich nicht getraut, an eine andere Stelle zu gehen, aus Furcht, ich könnte sie verjagen. Viel Spaß mit dem Video:

  3. Absolutely adorable. You are privileged, Pit 🙂 🙂

    How wonderful they came to your backyard! Such a greenery beautiful yard. 🙂

    • Hi Amy,
      you’re welcome. I like to share these beautiful views of the fawns. As to our backyard: I’m lucky that the video doesn’t show details. I have lots of work to do still to make it really look good. But I admit that it’s nicely green just now.
      Have a great weekend,

  7. Sweet video……..the fawns are so adorable with their spots!

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy

    • They are adorable, I agree, and they also blend in very well with their surroundings. Mother nature has done a good job!
      Have a great weekend, y’alls, and a special hug to Teddy,

  8. Die sind ja so wunderschön lieber Pit.

    LG Mathilda 😊😊😊😍😍😍

  9. Such a beautiful environment and they are lovely!

  10. What a lovely, peaceful scene. I can imagine how much pleasure it gives you to have them around. And it really is obvious from this video how those spots help camouflage the fawns. They do blend in with the dappled light.

    • That’s what I always think about these garden scenes: so peaceful! We certainly love to have the deer around – more so when they have their fawns. You’re right: they’re really well camouflaged.

  11. Super video. I have never seen a fawn suckle its mom while the mom is lying down. I love your zoom.

  12. Very sweet! What a nice sight
