September Days are Here...

With Summer's best of weather
And Autumn's best of cheer.
Helen Hunt Jackson

On the way to a family reunion on Saturday I spied a
little face peering at me along the road
through the leaves and sticks.
I had to get a few shots and risk being late...

She was curious but not afraid

I thought there must be a mom as she kept
looking off to the side

Unexpectedly from the other direction another fawn appeared
and now I thought Twins.

They perk their ears as the camera clicks

Trying to get a closer look at me

Then almost ignoring me and starting to eat again

When Autumn arrives the spots on the deer start to fade

If you look closely you can see just a few

They moved on down through the woods with me
following after and seemed to be interested in this stump

Now I'm really glad I stayed... Another appears..... Triplets!
Eating something on the stump

Sharing with the sibling

I zoomed in to see what was there and it looked like
a chestnut.... but I have no idea what trees are in this area

Whatever it was it was something they liked to eat

I was having such a good time getting these pictures

but as everything happens, I had to remember where I was
and that I had family waiting at a Reunion...

As I drive away I see them crossing over to the other
side and disappearing into the woods.

I always feel blessed to see these glimpses of nature
and to be able to get the pictures.

What an exciting happening! I love to see them together like that! Usually one goes off in one direction and the other in the opposite...So sweet they are! Love the pictures!

I hope you weren't too late but these photos were definitely worth it if you were! How cool is that, triplets!!!

Well I guess you were blessed with all these photos. What a family you came across. Lovely animals.

To rest your fears about my Wild Cat, it is really taken care of by the farm hands and people who work for Aullwood. The cat has really bad hair and when they try to cut it a new way, it never works out. It is a tame cat and you can pet it but it looks like it is wild or lost its mind. He has a warm bed, water, food dishes and a nice chest up off the floor. He sleeps or she sleeps right across from the two big horses.

I hope you are OK. I haven't seen hide nor hair of you for a while.
