Finally! Some velvet

Dad has been gathering and rotating the camera memory cards for about a month now hoping to get a picture of something we like.  There are a group of does hanging around which we think are the same group that has been there for the past three of four years.  We kept telling ourselves that ‘where there are does, there are buck’ but it’s just not the same.  Finally!  We saw what we were looking for.  Just two pictures but this one is good enough to get us ready to take to the woods.
