Look carefully and you’ll see a fawn just to the right of the little red wagon. Yes, I have a little red wagon! Here she is again between the two birdhouses:
This is one of twins born to a momma with only 3 good legs who hops around the yard gathering acorns and looking after her family. I have to admire her for surviving with her handicap and producing such a beautiful family. When she, or any other momma, senses my presence, she stomps one foot as if either demanding that I vacate the premises or trying to startle me into revealing my postion by a quick movement, and she exhales a loud airy snort. Very intimidating! She is very brave and protective.
Here are the acorns they favor once they have fallen to the ground. Since the house has a tin roof, I know there is a bountiful harvest this year, due to the wonderful overdue rains the Hill Country has enjoyed.
