Back from our RV trip
When we were returning to the campground about 18:30 Sunday evening we saw this scene just as we approached the turn off into our campground. These three deer just ambled across the highway in front of us and didn't pause much in their grazing on the lawn while I stopped the car and took photos of them.
They looked to us like a family. This photo has what we think was the doe and fawn although the fawn appears to be close to full grown.
Here are all three of them in a closer view. As you can see they still have their winter coats on so are not as nice and sleek looking as they will be soon, but they do seem to be healthy.
I will get to more of the photos soon and hope to be able to do a post a day for awhile. It was kind of awkward from the road as we didn't have Internet connections in all of the campgrounds and I only had the laptop computer to work on the photos. I have gotten spoiled with the speed of my desktop PC and it's larger monitor to view the photos on as I work with them. I also knew that I'd end up redoing much of what I did on the road when I got home as I have a way I like to store them here and the set has grown so large that I really don't try to work with all of them on the laptop and its smaller hard drives.
Oh wait. In deer herds the bucks usually walk at the end of the line (probably an adaptation to hunters) and that guy at the back doesn't have any horn buds. Happily nobody will be shooting at these three. I like muleys.
Sounds like you enjoyed your trip. I'm glad you're back safely.
