Never the less, I enjoyed the outing though was sad after 2 hours, no mom deer came around, so these orphaned girls are on their own. Deer usually stay with their mom's for the first year and lose their spots around 6 months of age. The male deer usually never see their mother's again, but the daughter's will often come back after they have babies of their own and hang out in herds with the mother.
They sure are cute up close and just observing them was fun on this cool morning.

Gingerly stepping closer while looking for some good grass to eat.
Missed the mid air leap, darn it but this was the push off.
This was a great photo showing huge strides.
I went out about 45 minutes later, and as the guy next door cut his grass with a push mower, they went in the woods much closer to where I was staying. I went out there trying to coax her closer but the dense jungle was too overgrown to get closer. They patiently waited as the man cut his grass. But,when the
jug head neighbor fired up the WAY TOO LOUD WEED TRIMMER, they bolted into the woods, and I never saw them again. Not even in the next two mornings. Good luck, kids! Thanks for the photographs.
By the way, I think weed trimmers should be made illegal or quieter. If they are louder than the average push mower, that's totally insane but I digress off the nature topic!
