Such a sad time of year for me as gun season approaches. The big boys have all gone to other territories which leaves a few 2 year olds to watch over the herd. Nub thinks he needs to go with the older bucks and left in the beginning of the month. He did return for a couple of days and fed near his cousin BB, his mother Brownie and his twin sister Cocoa. He is gorgeous and his rack is very 'advanced' compared to his friends. He was so sluggish and relaxed. I haven't seen my three years olds for well over a couple of weeks. They split up and Bossy's Boy will return occasionally along with Bandit. Twin and Thick Neck have been gone for much longer than that. The fawns are growing like weeds and are so cute. I dislike using my long lens as they are skittish when they see it, but it seems to take better photos. Brownie's babies get so close that I have to step back in order to focus. Enjoy these beautiful faces! They each have their own personalities and are such a joy for me to watch. I know their names are simple but the names mostly describe a distinguishing feature, a personality quirk ...easier for 'Mama' to remember all of these brown four legged creatures!
