Mama Deer Nursing 3 Baby Deer
On my way to the park this evening with my 3 kids, three baby deer ran in front of our car.
We stopped a moment to watch them scoot over to their Mommy waiting in the field across the road.
At first, they were just happily playing. But at second glance, Mama deer stopped, looked right at me and let her babies nurse a while. We were staring at each other. Just two moms of three. She was probably scared and worried wondering what the heck I was doing hanging out of the window pointing something (my iPhone) at her. I was in awe like I was watching a Disney movie.
We see deer all of the time in Bucks County.
We worry about hitting them while we drive, how they may eat our gardens and flowers or that they carry Lymes disease. But to see a mama deer just playing and taking care of her babies like we did tonight doesn’t happen often. Watching them was a reminder of how really simple life can be.
While my picture is not the best, notice the sun shining down from heaven on these sweet animals.
Happy Summer Day,
