Woodland Visitors

I had three visitors to my backyard yesterday morning. A small doe, a larger doe, and a five point buck! He was a little guy, but displayed some fine looking antlers in velvet. They ate ground hemlock and a few flowers, stared at me for a little while, then meandered into the woods.
I used to see a lot of whitetail deer in my yard but not as many in recent years. This is the 3rd time these guys have visited in a couple of weeks, so I'm happy to see them back again. Didn't that little buck pose nicely?

So beautiful! Something us city folk just don't get to appreciate in our own backyards!

Nice pics! A deer family! Sweet, dear, deer family. They look cute, like they are just starting a family. Do they need a cute bungalow?

Your lawn ornaments look almost real. That looks like a deer family that had traffic tied up near the community college in Dearborn; they don't know how dangerous playing in the street can be.
