Thank you, Tyler and Jemma! They have visited often and today I took more photos and some video as the fawns were running and jumping through the yard chasing each other.

Great shots of them interacting, and congratulations on having that in your yard. I had a small heard of deer show up in my yard last summer, but no fawns - that must be awesome to see.

Thanks for adding it to the N.I.T.Y. Project as well.
