Well... eventually I mean.

I've bumped into several fawns this year while going about my business.  We had one sitting under the pear tree in the front yard while we ate dinner on the porch.  I nearly stepped on one while doing farm stuff in the front pasture, and yesterday I nearly backed into one in the garden.  It was just laying there underfoot between tomato rows.  I bent down and gave it a little scratch on the noggin, which is the 2nd deer I've touched this year.  The first was feeding with the sheep and went  scoot en twixt my legs as I was walking through the flock.

I see a dozen rabbits a day if I see one, I've got two buzzard nests in the old barn, and I've seen at least a half dozen bee swarms:

Don't know why it stuck the bee swarm picture upside down...

I saw a woodcock by the big pond while mowing yesterday, first in a few years, and 3 grouse while on my evening walk the other day.  They were all of course too fast for me to snap a shot.  I haven't seen a grouse around here in 30 years.

Lots of critters in the woods to watch this year...  Just got the bee swarm out of my chimney, silly bees.

Bees are a PITA if you are not a beekeeper! All the other critters are cool to watch, even the buzzards. It’s just a shame they stink so bad a ruin anything they roost on/in!!!

Very nice! Deer there are almost pets from what I can see. With some luck he might become a monster 🙂

Those fawns are beyond cute.  I love seeing them.  Several years ago wife and I were driving a real back road and came upon a doe with two fawns that could not have been more then several hours old out in the middle of the road.  Mom made a leap off the road and over a fence.  Baby #1 got to the fence and could not get through so wife helped it through.  Baby #2 dropped down in the middle of the road.... so, I picked it up and also put it through the fence.  All this while mom was "flitting" back and forth beyond the fence.  We watched as she went to each one and led them away.  They are such a treasure to hold when they are that young....  Who knows, I may have picked up the next P&Y world record.....

I saw another fawn laying in the grass in the chestnut grove as I arrived to do some painting on the shed.  We still have coyotes as I hear them howling all the time, but the deer sure seem to be coming back.  I figured they would learn to adapt to the new predator, but I didn't think it would happen so quickly.  It took about 10 years for the woods to go from sterile (no critters except little brown birds) to busy.  The beavers haven't come back yet, but maybe soon.

I'm still clinging to my flip-phone.  The one thing that motivates me to think about getting a smart-ass phone is the camera.  It would be nice to have a camera handy all the time...
