Apple Picking With the Twins


We have spent the summer watching this doe raise her two fawns. A few months ago I found them in the apple orchard early one morning. The fawns were very young and still had their spots. They were racing around chasing each other. They are so much fun to watch. The deer are very possessive of the apple trees. They will snort and stamp at us trying to chase us away so they can come down and eat.


Winter is here. I'm not sure I am ready for it.

How cute! We have fawns in our backyard every summer, and feel very proud that the doe feels our yard is a safe place for her baby. The one of her reaching up for the apple is great! I love the snow - I feel like I'm in a fairytale when it snows. :) None here in Texas, so please post lots of snow pictures!

The deer are precious. Stopping by in honor of Thanksgiving. Want to give thanks for all the wonderful people in my life. Thanks for all you do that brings joy to me.

Lucky you to be so close to nature! Great photos!

Oh how lucky you are. That second picture would make a fabulous christmas card. The bright red apples on the leafless trees are gorgoeus.

How beautiful and how exotic as we in the southern hemisphere prepare for another hot and humid December.

Sighhh...such a sense of peace whilst looking at these photographs. The deer are so beautiful. I can imagine the silence.
Summer has arrived with all it's might and I'm definitely not ready for it.
