The doe, the cats, the porcupine

Stepping out of the house, I was about to go fetch the trailcam videos. Lo, and behold...
We have one doe that usually stays around us in the summer. Most of the others take off.

The cats were quite curious. Cin on the garden stone, Nutmeg easing closer to her.

Nutmeg trotted towards the grass, where the mice are, and our doe backed off.
From there, I went down to the pond, and the doe bounded off.

My poor frogpond is drying up. There are three bullfrogs on it.

Apparently, the doe ran around and to the other side of the frogpond!


This is Cin. He reminds me of my brother who, after 5 minutes at the cottage got a soaker!

The aspen grove (formerly known as poplar), are growing nicely. The deer trim them, so it's taken them some time.

I keep taking photos of my hosta, anticipating the doe from trimming them.

Then, in the backyard, I peeked out after dinner, and noticed our baby porcupine eating clover.

The porcupine, i have had a lesson in wildlife eating habits, love the clover flowers, that is a wonderful grass for hay down here, or it was when I was a child. Great video, you have a super zoom.
