Twins!

Finding my first set of twins of the season was another bonus to the week I had. These guys were found pretty late in the evening, so the graininess was a bit more than I would have liked, but I am always thankful for the experience and end up complaining about the quality later.

I was very happy that I caught the baby nursing for a brief moment. This frame was when mom was telling her baby that enough was enough.



Inspecting the photo later, I can't even imagine going through life with flies such a constant bother, let alone the ticks, mites, etc. (Click for a closer view of the pests.)

Is it just me or does this mother have a bit of donkey in her?

Yes, a bit of donkey I think! (lol). Very nice photo. I don't notice any graininess.

Really nice late evening photo! And yes...that mom sure isn't the prettiest on the block ;-) I think she looks tired and agitated and no wonder...I looked at the picture large and holy FLIES! I always feel sorry for the deer this time of year. It's been unseasonably cold here in PA and that helps keep the bugs down. The twins are darling and a nice capture for you!

You get the greatest nature photos! I live in the suburbs so all of my animal photos come from the zoo. I'm so jealous!
