The twin deer came to visit us again this morning. This time their mother was out of sight, but suspect she was watching them from the woods. They got close enough for us to see that one is a female and one is a male, thanks to the little nubs of antlers starting to appear on his head. We named the female Apple and the male Pumpkin.
Apple is the more skiddish of the two. She spent a lot of time looking around, ears moving, and didn’t venture far from the edge of the woods. A few times she ran back into the woods and reappeared a little while later.
Pumpkin spent most of his time eating the clover in our lawn. He kept his head down and came really close to our house. I didn’t snap pictures when he was close because I didn’t want to scare him away.
To see who else is strolling today, visit the Quiet Country House.
