  1. Fantastic pictures, Mary! We also had fawns on our property [you saw the pics and the video], but only 3 sightings so far. I envy you!
    Take care,


    1. Yes, I enjoyed seeing your postings and figured you would like these. Deer, and especially the little fawn, are beautiful to see. Some find them to be a nuisance, as they treat gardens as a salad, but I am fortunate enough to be in an area where there is plenty of natural growth for them to enjoy. Hope you have more sightings soon! Best regards, Mary


      1. We even plant their “salad”. 😉 Well, we do put fences around the stuff they seem to like most. But if they eat sometjhing, we don’t care. We enjoy them too much.
        I really enjoyed looking at your pics. Thanks for sharing.
        Best regards,
