The fawns are back for a return visit.

fawns settle down

Here they are resting in the afternoon sun, their mother just a few feet away, taking a load off those long legs herself.

One morning as she grazed, they sprinted among the pines on the hillside, zig-zagging in a game of chase, their white tails up like flags, the extra high leaps reminding me of pronking springbok.

As they were resting here, one of the cats leaped up on the deck in the foreground, startling the little guys before I could get in any more shots.

Hello Mo fans!

twin fawns with doe

The cats will take back seat this week to let their guests take the spotlight.

The back yard is forested and wild and we have sighted deer, raccoons, and wild turkey flocks passing through.  This week we had the privilege of seeing a doe with her just – born twin fawns, teetering on their slender legs as she licked them dry.

This was worth taking a break from bead making to stop and watch.  The cats noticed too and watched quietly from a respectful distance.
