Wildlife Variety Show

An Autumn morning spent outdoors can be likened to a variety show.  For the wildlife enthusiast the show is not equaled by anything TV has to offer.

This years fawns are now half-sized copies of their mother yet they continue to enjoy short nursing sessions.  Weaning the fawns is a gradual process with some fawns continuing to nurse into December. 

The Ruby-crowned Kinglets are busy feeding as they pass through on their autumn migration.

An Eastern Towhee makes a rare appearance for a photo-op.  The Towhee, a year around resident, seldom  ventures out from the heavy underbrush.

Beautiful captures, Coy! Love the mamma deer and babes and the cute kinglet. I tried really hard to get some good shots of these birds today but they were either too fast for me or it was a bad photo. You are good, well done!
