The Deer family

I had a quick peep at a fawn at Chesnut Park recently. The family was heading into the woods but they stopped to check me out for a minute. They usually ignore all of the people walking by but with a baby in the group they were a little more cautious. It was great seeing the young buck at the park as well. His tiny antlers were just coming out. I don’t know how old he’ll be when he heads out on his own  I guess he’ll head north of the park to hang out with the other guys. A ranger recently told me the bucks come down in the spring to mate but don’t hang around the park long. I’ve only seen a few of them there.

Below is one of the rivers running through the park near where the deer hang out. I took this with my Iphone.
