Mulies and wash calves
As I was checking cows around lunchtime a group of three mule deer does traipsed by.
You could tell that they weren't terribly alarmed by my presence.
I had the wind so I don't think they really knew what I was. They're pretty flighty but also curious. If nothing trips their flight trigger they'll often investigate things that are new and unfamiliar.
They seemed to be a mature doe and a pair of juvenile or yearling does. Perhaps a mama with twins from last year. The mature doe appears to be gravid.
It's always fun watching wildlife.
And it's fun watching calves. These little ones were navigating a shallow (ish) wash.
Hope you all are having a great day!
