Look at the babies!

I was thrilled to see these pictures on the camera.  I dont think I have ever seen a fawn this little in the pictures.  We had three of them, but he was in a hurry so this is the least blurry one.  I can not wait to see if there are more pictures when we pull the card next time.

And even though we saw the rafter of turkeys, it is nice to see the hen with such a healthy group of babies.

It will be great to see them grow over the next few months.  Hopefully they can do that without any interference from this.  Otherwise, Dad and I will have to take care of it.

You be the judge. For reference, the whole pile is about 5 inches across and Dad said that its about 4 days old. It's filled with apples and seeds.
