This afternoon while returning home I was traveling on Vermont Route 149 near the New York border, I saw in a field off the side of the road a female deer, she appear to be alone as I got closer I found this was not the case. It is not to unusual to see deer in this area, even in the middle of the day, what was different was the fact that these two were with her. A mother and twin fawns, it is rare to see twin white tail deer, many don't survive due to allot of reasons but these two where happy and healthy. May be a little to adventurous when mother deer saw me she turned and went back into the woods, these two came within 25 feet of me standing on the side of the road. After taking several photographs I said the them "shouldn't you two go find your mother" and this is what happened.
This piece was photographed once before I may have posted it here, however today we need to get some High Resolution RAW images for a project so I thought I would share one of the results. What do you think??

Every year about this time our front yard is on fire with the blossoms from this tree, it is one of the most spectacular sites I have ever seen. In a couple of weeks if the rain doesn't do to much damage the flowers it will be in full bloom, a better show than fall foliage by far.
