Lookit What I Saw Out the Window Today!

The spotted babies! Except they are getting bigger and losing their spots – you go babies! Okay, let me set this up, we’ve gotten almost 2″ of rain in the last two days and my back yard is ultra-saturated, so these babies are lying in very wet grass. These photos were taken through the window, so they’re not as clear as they should be. First they were lying there peacefully:


And then the one looking towards me got scared and started for the woods:


Here’s a butt photo of it heading into the woods:


And the other one got wind that there was possible danger lurking nearby:


Just a few little spots left! These babies are getting so big!  Stay safe babies!

    How lucky for you to see them grow over the summer- and we get to watch with you! I wonder how long the siblings will stay together. Any idea?

    I asked my expert animal person and he says deer will stay together as a family with their Mom until they start to mate, which is usually after two years. BTW, I saw the Mom this afternoon. She was gone by the time I got the camera ready.

    Oooohhh….my teeth hurt!
    I was in awe when I learned a while back that twins are the norm for deer…a single is the rarity. Cool, huh? And probably why there are so darn many of them!

    Can’t help being reminded of my bunnies when I see their tails!

    Hi Susan, Yeah, it is cool they have twins, they’re so cute, but like you said, there’s way too many of them!
    Hi Laura, I love their tails – they do remind me of bunnies!
    I forgot to mention that the first deer stretched his hind legs after he got up – I’ve never seen them do that.

    You either have a great camera, or they are close! Great shots of the family.

    Hi Sandy, They’re close! That’s what’s surprising. This neighborhood is so quiet (just the way I like it) the deer feel safe wandering around the street, in the front yard, and laying around in the back.
