The Yearling

 
She scared me.  I haven't seen her for weeks or her Mom.

 
I found the carcass of a deer in the lower meadow, but it looked to be a Mule Deer.  I wasn't sure.

 
They showed up the other day.  I shouldn't get so emotionally involved, but I was relieved to see them. 

 
Very relieved.

 
The doe should be giving birth soon.  I would love to capture pictures of her fawn.
 
Thanks so much for the comments on the Bison taking a dirt bath.  I'm glad you enjoy the pictures.  I went to town today and into the Park, but there were very few Bison.  The wildlife folks were on the road on horseback hazing a few of the Bison back into the Park, but it was slow driving and I couldn't stop to take any pictures.

  2. Oh, I never get tired of the pictures!!! It just amazes me that you live where you do and have access to all that wonderful wildlife. I also understand the attachment to them. I have a soft spot in my heart for all of the animals and try and do my part helping feed them. The birds, hummingbirds, stray cats, possums and even a raccoon show up in my yard every day looking for their handout and I gladly oblige. I asked my husband one day if he minded working just to bring home a paycheck to feed the animals and he just grinned at me. He loves them too. Hope you have a great weekend Nancy. And yes, keep those pictures coming. Look forward to seeing the new babies.

  6. I would be the same, I am actually looking out for particular rabbit in our neighbourhood right now, don't think he/she survived our extremely mild winter, haven't seen him/her for a few months now. He/she is white with black spots, probably escaped from a cage in our neighbourhood (the wild rabbits are grey/brown) and survived a few very severe winters, much to my surprise.....
    Love your pictures again.

  7. I'm so very glad the little yearling came back. She has such a sweet, sweet face!! I'll keep my fingers crossed you're able to get a picture of the baby fawn when she/he is born.

  9. How can you not get involved? I also know my "neighbors" and worry when they don't come around or change their routine. What a blessing to live in such a beautiful place.
