Oh deer!
August 15, 2015

The longer I live in the 'burbs, the more I appreciate nature.  The fawn in this pic was born directly outside my office window, and I'd like to think it's because Mama deer trusted me enough to know it was a safe place.

The family sometimes visits my bird feeder, and it's been fun to watch the fawn grow throughout the summer.   

Papa deer has speckles of blood on his antlers, probably caused by running into branches.  Apparently, when the antlers are "in velvet", they are highly vascularized and easily damaged.  In the winter the antlers will harden and then fall off before regrowing in the Spring.
