This was the first White-tailed buck with horns that I’ve seen this spring.

 

I’ve been having a great spring in terms of fawn sightings.

 

It’s been about a week since this pair of Eastern Bluebirds built their nest. For the most part I haven’t seen them around the nest but yesterday I noticed they were showing a little more interest in the nest.

 

There were a variety of flowers out on a recent hike along the Red Cedar State Trail.

 

 

I noticed a White-tailed deer doe out in the prairie. From the way it was behaving I realized that it was grooming a fawn. Unfortunately the fawn was not visible.  When the doe moved the fawn was in the open and I managed a few shots before it bounded off.
