I was sitting in my living room just a few minutes ago when a young doe came along and stopped right next to the patio. I picked up my camera a took a couple of photos, and my movement attracted the attention of the deer. She stood there and stared at me for a minute or so, then turned and fled for the safety of the yard. But then she turned around and stared back at me again:
I'm guessing that this doe is two or three years old, recently independent of her mother, who appears to have just had another fawn, which I discovered in my yard last week. I'll be keeping my eyes open for all of them over the rest of the summer.
