This past Sunday about 12:30 p.m. when I was sitting on the sofa working on my coupons from the Sunday paper, AND watching football, I glanced out the window --and guess what I saw???? I saw a Mama deer and her 3 little ones near the golf course fairway out back. I hollered at George and both of us got out our cameras... Here's what we saw!!!!! Above is Mama watching us --while standing 'guard'... You can see some of the Fall color which has 'popped out' just recently. Below are more!
Here are the three babies (not that young anymore) --enjoying some lunch!!!
Here is one of the little ones ---as he tries to eat, but is watching us also!!!
Here's another picture of the little ones... Even the one who is eating --is looking at us. Can you tell????? Aren't they just gorgeous?
Another critter jumped into this picture... Can you see him????? He's in the shade--but obviously, is paying no attention to the deer near him!!!!
This was a FIRST for us!!!! Have you ever seen a Mama Deer feeding her little ones???? These three little guys just ran up to Mom and had a nice drink!!!!! I was THRILLED to see this --since I had never seen it before.
I just have to share one more photo of the 'feeding'.... Mama was glaring at us ---but she stood still and allowed the little ones to enjoy a drink!!!! I don't know when the Mama's wean their little ones --but these guys were not 'that' young.... Anyone know????
Hope you enjoyed seeing our deer today... As long as they stay away from our Roses (and they do --due to the "Liquid Fence" which we spray), we LOVE seeing them.
Our Fall colors are really beginning to show off now... We had a fabulous trip yesterday to the Smokies. We took about 200 pictures together---and will begin sharing some of them next week. Hope you have a fabulous weekend --and get out and enjoy the beauty all around you. See you on Monday morning!
Have a great day.
