A female deer ...
.. and her fawn.
This mama deer actually has two fawns - we saw all of them earlier this crisp and glorious morning. (Such a gorgeous August day ~ there's a hint of fall in this rereshing air ...) The deer have been visiting our yard everyday and though it's hard to get a clear shot - the mama's quite (wisely) skittish - I had to share this slightly blurry one with you all. My friends, I am falling in love with our new backyard ... so many discoveries to come, I'm sure. Can't wait to start our new nature logs!
Just wanted to pop in quickly to share this happy photo ... hope your week's going well!
