Nap Time

One of the camera traps above the house happened to be in the right place at the right time – a stroke of luck that confirmed Ah Wang’s comment, “Never underestimate luck.”

A white-tail doe walked into the camera’s view one mid-afternoon and bedded down right in front of the camera. During the time she was there the camera took well over 50 photographs. Here’s a video assembled from some of those photos –

This appears to be the old doe whose other fawn died in our yard earlier this year, as chronicled in this post.

The doe, fawn and the doe’s older offspring have been eating drops from an apple tree in the yard for several weeks and she didn’t go far to rest during the heat of the day.
