We’ve seen more deer in our yard this year than we have since we’ve been here. There has always been at least a mother and one or two fawns that have been regulars. This year the gang has expanded. This mom and her spotted little “Bambi” started coming around last week. (Okay, a disclosure is in order here. We’ve had some fallen apples that we’ve tossed out of our garden enclosure. That’s why Mom’s mouth is open here. She’s eating a small apple.)
For some reason this pose made me think of Robert DeNiro in the movie “Taxi Driver” years ago. “You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to ME?”
This was the best I could do to capture Bambi. I was surprised to see one this young so late in summer. By now most of the fawns are almost as big as Mom.
