Just some random pics taken recently.
These first ones are of two very cute little visitors who came in today. I have been waiting since early spring to get this shot, and finally had the opportunity! I don't have a decent lens for distance yet, so getting shots at any distance is difficult! So this afternoon, hubby and I were relaxing after working on the barn lights all morning, and I looked out the patio door to find these little sweeties had come in with mom to get some salt! I waited patiently, and they were just brave enough to come towards the patio today!
Mom had twins in the field across from us late may! I watched her walk across the field with them, bringing them to the woods, the morning they were born. She had been hiding them very well until about 3 weeks ago, when she started trusting us to bring them in with her. I'm pretty sure one is a male, and the other a female, because one is quite a bit bigger than the other. There is another mom who visits us with her fawn as well, but she's been a little more protective of hers, and she doesn't let it come to close to the house.
The little male. He was hiding towards the side of the house, and I couldn't get pics of him until he decided to finally come and look for mom and sis. They were already gone, so he finally decided it was time to run along.
The little female. She is quite a bit smaller than the male.
Love these deep purple clematis! My grandmother always had purple clematis climbing on a rail in front of the house when I was young.

Bzzzz! Almost stepped on this little guy today as he was enjoying a little white clover on the lawn.
