Bambi!!

 

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

And oh my goodness….

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

The family kept a close huddle on the food.

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

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

Bambi!

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.

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

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

Welcome to the herd little one.

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

 

 

 

 

Have you ever….

 

Tried to photograph 4 fawns frolicking around your back yard… at dusk…. through a window?

It’s not easy.

And most of your shots come out looking like this:

They look rather like ghost deer…

But I assure you they were corporeal beings.

They just rarely stand still.

Or face the camera.

The video is poor quality, and a bit shaky…. although it gets slightly better halfway through.

But you’ll see what I mean about frolicking.

 

 

Multiple Bambis!

There.

You have now fulfilled your cuteness quota for the day.
