Mama-Deer with Twins   9 comments

This evening, we had 4 fawns altogether in our garden, and two seem to have been twins. At least they wre of the same size and nursing from the same mama:

That’s the area at the north-east corner [the intersection of Lower Crabapple and Frederick Roads] of our property which we keep unmowed because of the wildflowers.
