We have a small herd of deer that we have been feeding in the back yard for a few years now. We have been able to see some cool things while sitting at our kitchen table having breakfast or dinner or while we were swimming.
Anyway. In the pictures you will see 2 little spotted fawns with their mom. We saw these 2 within a couple of hours of being born (unfortunately we didn't get pictures that day) but you could tell by their lack of coordination and the fact that their mom was still licking them up. So we watched them grow up from babies. We believe that their mom died within a month or so after they were born because she just disappeared one day but the babies were still hanging around. I started putting out extra food for them when I saw what was going on and they stuck around ever since.
Well this year is their 1st year pushing antlers and it has been a blast watching them grow.
