Meanwhile in the Back Yard

Tonight we had a total of 6 fawns in the garden. I could not get all of them into one picture, though. Neither in the stills I took nor in the video. Here there are 4, to begin with:

Zwischenzeitlich im Garten

Heute Abend hatten wir insgesamt 6 Kitze im Garten. Ich habe sie allerdings nicht alle zusammen auf’s Bild bekommen – weder in den Fotos noch in den Videos. Hier sind schon mal 4:


4 Fawns – 1 Was Scampering around Elsewhere

And here’s #6, one I’ve never seen before. It is much bigger than the others, so it must have been born (way) earlier:

Und hier ist #6, eines, das ich vorher noch nie gesehen habe. Es ist ein ganzes Stück größer als die anderen, muss also eine Zeit früher geboren sein:


The (Bigger) Newcomer

And now the video: near the beginning you can see the deer fighting for food, and somewhere around the middle it is – unfortunately – blurry as I’m trying to zoom in and still follow that little one scampering around ever so fast:

Und nun das Video: ziemlich zu Anfang sieht man, wie sie ums Futter kämpfen, und irgendwo nahe der Mitte des Videos ist es – leider- sehr unscharf, weil ich versucht hatte, reinzuzoomen und dem Kleinen zu folgen, während es im Garten herumflitzte:


Viel Spass!

  3. Holy cow! That’s quite the herd dropping in! 🦌 Very envious of your ‘deer TV.’

    • Yes, we have had quite a few here lately, day in, day out. And I’d possible call it “NV” [= Nearvision”] 😉 . They come ever so close. This morning I saw them grazing just in front of the kitchen window: the mother browsing on leaves from a bush we have there, the fawns eating our ground cover. Unfortunately, I wasn’t fast enough with the camera. Well, it wouldn’t have been great shots anyway, through the windows and the blinds. And from long experience I know I can’t open the front door not go around the house: the very first moment they sense me, they’re gone like the wind. So I just watchged – in great amazement.
