White-tailed Deer Family

As Colvin Run Habitat visitors know, white-tailed deer are plentiful - to the point that we refer to any backyard flowers as deer food.
Two family units were near daily visitor this summer - one was a female and a single fawn - the other family was the one pictured here - a doe, a buck, and two fawns.
Most times, the family simply walked through feeding on anything green at sunrise or sunset. They would also drink from the bird bath (the next post). Some days the whole family would sleep away the day in the shade of the Bradford pear trees in the Habitat.
