Random wildlife shots.

 

Because it’s time to clear out the photo files again.

Momma chuck has been packing on the pounds with an eye toward winter..

But it doesn’t stop her from scrambling up and over the rock wall quicker than I can move my shutter finger.

I have a feeling at least one of her two remaining offspring will be sticking around when the snow flies.

I keep catching him rooting around under the daylilies, filling his mouth with dead leaves and making off for parts unknown with nesting material.

Last year’s fawn comes every night, and since his new antlers are decidedly unbranched, I’ve taken to calling him the antenna buck. Because I’m old… and remember when you had to wiggle those things every afternoon to watch Dark Shadows.

Though these next two pics were at the outermost limit of my zoom, I’m including them because we rarely see momma turkey and her young.

She raises them in the woods and neighboring meadows, never crossing our large expanse of open lawn.

And finally, a few Bambi shots.

Because they’re so damned sweet, I can’t help it.

A deer-able.

 

We caught another glimpse of Bambi last night.

Making it’s way into the woods with mom.

Can I get an awwww?

Last year’s babies antlers are growing…. this one’s straight up.

 

IMG_2738

 

And this one’s up and out.

They’re brothers and no, I have no idea why their racks grow in different shapes.

And lastly, the end.

Of the deer, as well as my post.

 

 

 

 

Bambi!!

 

We had our first little guy sighting of the season the other day.

 

IMG_2704

 

And oh my goodness….

 

IMG_2705

 

If that isn’t the definition of the word sweet I’ll eat a kale souffle.

 

IMG_2707

 

The family kept a close huddle on the food.

 

IMG_2709

 

But Junior managed to push his/her way into the fray.

 

IMG_2712

 

I think I might have audibly squeaked in joy at that point.

 

IMG_2714

 

Bambi!

 

IMG_2706

 

We knew some of the does were pregnant, but they won’t bring the fawns up out of the woods for the first few months.

 

IMG_2716

 

And even then it’s usually very early in the morning when yours truly is still in dreamland.

 

IMG_2718

 

So it was wonderful to see them in the late late afternoon when the sun was still shining and providing light for pictures.

 

IMG_2719

 

Welcome to the herd little one.

 

IMG_2721

 

You’ll want to stick around, the crazy lady with the camera lays out a pretty nice buffet.

 

 

 

 

Random Bambi ….

 

If you haven’t guessed by now, I take a lot of pictures.

My life may not be fascinating…

But it’s damn sure well documented.

And what’s a blog for if not sharing random baby deer photos from earlier this summer?

 

IMG_1107

 

Not much to comment on.

 

IMG_1264

 

Just enjoy the sweetness…

 

IMG_1282

 

While I organize my photo files.

 

IMG_1118

 

And if you’re not into cute furry 4 legged babies?

 

IMG_1186

 

Then tune in again next time…

 

IMG_1106

 

When I’m sure to have more meaningless drivel.
