Mid-Summer Whitetails

Mid Summer and the whitetail fawns are no longer the awkward leggy gangling creatures of two months ago.  Very alert and extremely agile, the fawns are now spotted miniatures of their mothers.



A whitetail buck's neck shows patches of short gray hair beginning to show as the red summer hair is already beginning to be replaced with the new insulated coat. 

Seasons change one day at a time.  Although the mid point of summer only recently passed, the whitetail deer's preparations for cool winds of autumn is already underway.
