I thought we would cruise around and check the deer. We have our faithful bus companion, and it is loaded with brunch and bubbly.Photo by unsplash
Hop aboard, and let’s see what we can find.
Our first sighting is of a mama deer all by herself. I hope everything is okay in the deer household.
Here are a couple of this year’s fawns. Their camouflage spots are beginning to fade.
A young buck wondering what this yellow thing is doing here.
A middle-aged buck having a stroll.
Then there is grandpa. I wonder if we could get him to turn and show us his rack. “Hey, Grandpa.”
Wow. All the previous photos were taken by The Producer. She actually called to the buck, and he stopped and turned. I guess he couldn’t resist a pretty woman.
A whole family taking advantage of the rain refreshed grass. This is the only picture I took on this trip.
This is an Axis deer who escaped from an exotic ranch nearby. Originally from southern India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, the axis deer was introduced to Molokai, Hawaii in the 1860s, Maui years after that, and Texas in 1932, intended as a game animal. Some escaped the ranches like this one. There are over 6000 roaming free in Texas. Photo by the Producer.
I hope you enjoyed our little safari. Feel free to refill those containers with bubbly but remember no drinking and driving. Have a safe and healthy week.
