A couple days ago I looked out back and saw one of my boys, the little buck deer I've watched grow up. Interestingly he was hanging out with a doe with two little fawns. I don't know if he has a lady in his life now or if that might have been his mother with his younger siblings.
I was trying to slip quietly out the back door to take pictures of the mom and babies, and they, unfortunately, took off before I could get snaps. And the boy looked at me with more startle in his posture that I've seen in a long time. I don't know if he was alarmed or if he was incensed that I ran off the others. Here is his look....
I can't tell for certain, but I think the velvet is off his antlers, so it is possible that he is a-courtin' and irritate that I'm getting in the way. I actually don't think a doe with first-year babies is "courtable," but he might not realize that yet. I donno.
And I saw a beautiful moonrise last night. There were just enough clouds to reflect the light from the moon show up.
It was really pretty.
The kind of sky that makes me wish I were in love!!
That's all, just a little sharing!
