Family Portrait?

Remember that long-legged fawn that I showed you? (see link below) He (I think) and his little sister (I think) and mama have decided that their territory is my yard. Here's Mama.

Here are the twins. Mr. long-legs on the left.

But here is the strange thing. For more than a week there's been a fourth member of their group. A buck is hanging around with them. This seems odd to me. One doesn't usually see family groups of deer. I'm wondering if the buck is a last-year fawn of the same doe rather than daddy.

They think I'm pretty unreasonable to want to come outside on my deck and watch them.

In other news: I did a lot of errands, grocery shopping, and voted.

What a treat to have them right there in your backyard. They don't seem too worried that you're watching them.

Ann- They are not worried at all- they face off and stomp at us!
