Hours Old

New baby, just hours old. Mama has had her babies in the old nursery every year we’ve been here. I watched three sets of fawns grow up here. Big sister, last years baby is on the right. The twins, now three years old are just out of shot.


Deceiving Beauty

Ever wondered what a Venus Flytrap flower would look like?  Me neither.
This is the first one we’ve ever had flower for us. Kind of dainty and pretty for a something that instills terror in the insect world….  pollinators beware!
