I noticed a deer out in my prairie and she appeared to be nursing a fawn. I raced up-stairs to get a better view of them in the long grass. As I watched the fawn feeding I kept seeing three ears. It took a minute to realize that there was a second fawn nursing. When they were finished nursing I could see both of them. They followed the mother as she walked through the prairie and into the woods.

My wife and I made a late spring visit to Crex Meadows. When we arrived there was a large gathering of adult swans along the Phantom Lake Road. They didn’t seem to be inclined to move so I was able to capture some nice closeups of them.

We also encountered several pairs of swans with cygnets.

 

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

 

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.
