Whitetail Update

 
With summer drawing to a close the whitetail bucks are beginning to loose their velvet.

 
It's been a week since I first observed a buck that had shed his velvet now the ratio of hard/velvet is about 50/50

 
The fawn's spots are beginning to fade, with some fawns sporting more and brighter spots than others

 
However even with their spots fading the little fellows still retain much of their "cute" appeal.

I don't think they ever lose their "cute" appeal ~ even a big ol' rutty buck still looks pretty to me:)
