Look at those velvet antlers

This is what you always want to see this early in the season!

This group of deer included two does and a small buck.  We thought that we could see his antlers but it wasn't until I zoomed in with my camera that we knew for sure.  This is in an area where the deer are now, thankfully, starting to rebound after being taken over by coyotes.  Hopefully we will see more of him and more deer as we get the cameras out and start scouting the area.

So many deer!

I can not remember a time when I have seen so much deer during the middle of the summer.  This deer, we have named Puffball because she has a puff for a tail.  She lives behind my parent's house and from the size of her, she is a very healthy doe.  There is another doe there as well, who has twins this spring.



This is the doe with the twins.  We have seen the twins playing on the lawn, but when I tried to take their picture, I spooked one of them and they ran off.  I will hopefully get a picture sometime this summer.



Then, we had this doe on our back yard, checking out the 3D decoy that we have out there.  She seemed a lot less nervous with another "deer" around.  She ate grass and the leaves before she got spooked and ran off.
