This season of photo opportunies has been pretty well nixed. Everything cancelled. Spring in the country can provide lots of photography but sometimes Mother Nature is slow in providing them. Around where I live we’ve had a lot of wind and it’s been cold. The crocuses finally covered the hills, now the lilacs are blooming here. My trail camera managed to pull up some of the slack and recorded shots I never would have been able to capture. However, the animals have been slow in returning also.
I hope you enjoy theses shots of two young bucks, my assistant the trail camera was able to catch. Hopefully we see more of them.
I am very fortunate to live where I live. So many photo opportunities. There is a family of closes living very close to the farmstead. I imagine they are related to the ones that have live close for a number of years. I think I read once that the female will return to where she was born to raise her young. For what ever reason, I am so glad they are close. Watching the Kitts play is like having a basket of puppies. These photos were taken with a Browning Trail Camera. It has been set up by the den long before the Kitts arrived. They just think it is part of the scenery. There are five Kitts in total. They don’t seem to play outside together all the time. This may be a survival mode. I read (yes I do a lot of reading) that out of six only two or three will live to September. Yes Mother Nature can be cruel. I hope you enjoy watching them as much as I do.
For several years, we have had a Red Fox move in under the steel bins across the road from our home. It appears once again we have one in residence. As the Red Fox has a life span of about 5 years, I am assuming the one we have now and maybe last year, is an off spring of the original one we saw. This shots were captured with my Browning Trail camera. Hopefully I will be able to show you some of this years kits.
