Twin fawns bouncing sideways, trying to keep up with their blacktail mom. Like watching baby lambs at play, they brought a big smile to my face.
Then the doe spotted me and gave a warning to the twins. Immediately they hid and stayed absolutely still. Nature’s way of protecting the young.
The Roaring River Wilderness is a great place to spot young birds and animals while hiking in the late spring.
On Lower Rock Lake I was treated to a goldeneye duck and her six ducklings. She was having a tough time keeping them near to her along the shoreline of the lake.
Is there a more enjoyable time to be in the outdoors?
