Bambis and Their Mamas

This gallery contains 4 photos.

It’s taken a long time for the mamas to show us their babies, and there are way fewer than last year when there were 8, but finally the fawns have appeared. There are only just 4 [one set of twins … Continue reading

Precious Moments: Fawns, (Adult) Deer and a Wild Turkey in Our Back Yard

They’re Not Fighting … Yet

For the last few days I have seen two bucks in out back yard, (still) grazing amiably side by side. So, I conclude, they’re not (yet) in rut as I assume they would fight each other then. Once in a … Continue reading

Three Mature Bucks in the Yard

This gallery contains 8 photos.

I had seen them before, and even got a video – albeit of a very poor quality – of them, but a few days ago I got another chance for pictures of all three together in our back yard: Drei … Continue reading

Mature Bucks

This gallery contains 10 photos.

The clearest sign, to my mind, of approaching autumn – besides a clear drop in the nightly temperatures – is the appearance of mature bucks in our yard. They first showed up – singly or up to three at a … Continue reading
