Dad Deer Brings the Family

This morning, mom and the two young ones strolled through the Habitat. This evening, dad brought the two young ones through.
They were eating grass, which means that all of our flowers are completely gone. In the twenty-plus years that we have lived here, it is fairly rare that a male with a rack is observed, and even rarer for him to have young ones with him.

As the white-tailed deer are constant visitors (more like residents than visitors I guess), they tolerate me to photographing them. My normal practice to take a parallel path to theirs. I attempt to get closer, but I do not directly approach them. Finally, they always raise their tails and run.
