Summertime Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

When I got home tonight there was a Doe near the top of my driveway. I initially didn’t see the fawns, but then found two of them resting under some shrubs next to the house. This series of images are of the Doe, Fawns, and other deer in my backyard. No wonder why I can’t keep a kitchen garden other than the tomato plants on my deck. Even on the deck I have to worry since I have had deer jump up on to the deck in the past.
