The girls are out to get those carrots.  I just love looking at these beautiful animals.  I also think of the rough life they have in the wild.  I am glad they have you @MamaWick .

First we greet the group coming for their meals.  The doe duo enjoying their carrots and the solo ladies posing and looking so pretty!  Of course, love the photo with the wild grass in the background as always.  Nature greets us!

 

It is a calm time and MamaWick feeding her visitor is a bond of trust and kindness!!!!!

[ Edited ]

I was reading an interesting book review today about a biologist and former park ranger who had a moving and close relationship with a fox in the area surrounding her remote home in Montana.  As a woman whose parents never loved her, she sought solace and comfort away from people and in nature.

 

She had some interesting insights into deer behavior and markings that I thought might interest you.  Here:

 

"This background explains her need for Fox, and her ease with his mute companionship as they begin spending more time together. She locates his paths, and they traverse her land in tandem. In one scene the author and Fox follow several deer in the evening light, and Raven observes aloud that the bright white markings on the animals’ backsides are “glowing like highway markers.” Perhaps, she speculates, this enables the deer to follow each other easily even in the dusky twilight, and the straight file they form confines their scent, making them less vulnerable to predators. That Fox is unable to understand her does not lessen her enjoyment in discussing “a limitless number of engaging topics” with him. And his habit of presenting himself — standing on his hind legs, pressing his nose against her front window — provides a lonely soul with incomparable solace." 

 

Admittedly, I was intrigued by the author's close relationship with "Fox."  For those interested, the book is:

@MamaWick   Just wondering if PapaWick feeds the deer...

 

Will the deer take the carrots from PapaWick's hands or just yours?
