Some Four Legged Friends.....

This time of year the deer aren't threatened
by hunters and come out in the fields where you
can see them. I happened on to these youngsters
playing around ...

Caught the jump, the slap..

and the springing into the air...

It was all in good fun.

I've been dying to see a new fawn...and I did
well. ... sort of. Far away and in low light...

Look close.. the baby is there beside mom

One of my old friends... The Piebald deer

This deer appears to have been hurt or has some kind
of boil on it's shoulder.

Her sister was trying to hide from me.
Kestrels will be back .. They're all out of the nest
now and flying everywhere.

Well, I guess timing is sure were in the right place at the right time to capture these deer playing like that! Love your captions!!
It's good that Mom kept that little one in the deep weeds (such a cute pic)..they are so innocent and dependent on Mom being wise and keeping them safe!

Boy...that slap sure did look like it was meant to do some damage - cool capture!!!
I'm so glad you got to see a fawn - even if it is low light!
And I just can't BELIEVE that the piebald up your way is still alive and looking BEAUTIFUL! She is one smart cookie and is growing old quite gracefully - I'm so happy to see her!

I do hope the injured deer survives. They have such a hard time around here. No place to call home. The highways are murderous.

The photographs are wonderful.
