Buck, Doe, and Fawn. Summer Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

I was on the way to the grocery store and took the following images from my car. It appears that the young buck is either trying to be camouflaged or is just transporting weed seeds.

Wary Doe. Backyard Summer Nature in New Jersey.

This is the doe that was on the other side of my car last evening when I was taking the pictures of the fawn. I actually took this image while still sitting in the car with the Leica D-Lux 5 point & shoot after lowering the window. The quality is OK for recording the moment, but is not the same as the images of the fawn taken with Nikon D700 DSLR.

The tomato plants on my deck were looking much better after being watered last night and the light rain this evening. The big plants now have flowers, but have not set yet. The grape or cherry plants have many green tomatoes that have set. I didn’t get images today to show the progress of the plants because it was raining, but will try tomorrow.

Hot Summer Evening.

While out stitting on my deck, I took some images of a Doe. I also caught an image of a distant commercial jet passing in front of a rapidly growing storm cloud.
