The following pictures were all captured by the same game camera situated in a persimmon grove (behind the camera) that is the deer's favorite feeding place, both day and night. From here they can watch the open pasture or escape pretty quickly into the deep woods.
|This little guy is probably at least a couple days old.|
|And this little guy is a little less steady on his feet, possibly |
having been born the previous night.
|Isn't he just too precious?|
|The shot immediately following this one on the camera card shows this one nursing, |
but he's mostly blocked by his mama's legs, so I didn't include it.
|I'm sure his mama told him to stay hidden while she ran some errands, |
but he decided to be brave and get a better view of the pasture anyway.
And even though these two are early, we know there are more to come.
|This doe appears pregnant, although she's still tending to her yearling.|
|This doe is obviously pregnant, too, and looks like she'll deliver twins. |
Last year we had several sets of twins born at Le Rustique.
