Young Doe — Early Autumn in New Jersey.

This young doe that has only recently lost her spots looks hungry. Her ribs are showing, not a good sign as we move into Autumn and then Winter.

Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey

Turkey Vulture soaring. The population of Turkey Vultures has increased significantly since the state quit picking up the road killed deer. This is both hunting and rutting season so we have many deer running across roads and being hit by automobiles. Robin feasting on fall “bittersweet” berries. I don’t know if this robin plans to winter, or is feasting before flying south. Finally, some fall mushrooms.
