The more I study the animals, the more I am convinced that they each have their own personality. The males of the species are much more spooky, while the females are more docile.
We caught this nice little buck enjoying the day after a recent snow storm. He was soaking up the snow looking for food and water.
He seemed very content, and not in a hurry to get anywhere…. and I was happy to watch him and take it in.
We saw our first fawn, and I posted the photos here.
Since then we have had several sightings of different families. It has been an enormous treat to see these precious baby deer.
Mom is still very protective and constantly checking on her little ones. It’s so awesome to watch.
I can tell one family that comes by, as dad is still hanging out with them… usually waiting in the wings ever watchful.
What’s with this weather? Just when you think it’s time to plant tulips… or at least a garden; take off the long underwear and bring the shorts and t-shirts out of storage… NOT.
We got SNOW!
Ok, it’s true. It didn’t come down for very long… or very much. But come down it did. In a downpour of fine snow mist it raced across the sky, as if in a hurry to get somewhere else. It didn’t stick, or stay long. It was here and then it was gone. Glad I stuck my camera outside to capture it’s fleeting coldness.
This little buck got caught in a wave of it, and the cross hairs of my camera lens.
While Phoenix is getting 90F days, we are getting snow storms. Go figure. You never know what the day will bring here on the mountain.
