Through the Window

Some days, the deer come right up to the house. They are so close they are looking in through the windows.  I start to wonder if I'm the animal in the zoo cage and they're the ones visiting.

The other day, a mother doe and two of her fawns appeared.

Mother and Junior grazing in my yard. The photos were taken through the window with my Nikon D40. The glass created a bit of a glare.

Apparently this little one was in need of attention. Mother Deer stayed with it for quite a while. 

 Mostly she cleaned the little fawn's ears.

 Apparently they were very dirty!

Here's a shot to show you the window, so you can see how close they come to the house. That's about 10 feet away.


  1. NEAT! I just filmed two fawn in our yard last night. Got quite close to them as well.. LOVE these shots, Anita!

  2. Oh, that last shot really does capture how close they are!

  3. They are beautiful!

    Anita, do you have trouble commenting on some people's blogs? It's driving me crazy! I can't comment on Leonora's blog and an couple of others lately. No matter what I try, it keeps telling me to sign in and I AM signed in! I just wasted a half hour trying to comment on someone's blog because I don't want her to get her feelings hurt and think I'm ignoring her and I just can't figure it out.

  4. Deb, I sometimes have that trouble. I don't know what the issue is. It's very erratic.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
