Just as we began our drive this morning a tiny fawn stepped out into the middle of the road, then slowly trotted off into the ditch. His legs were the biggest part of his body, and he was quite a sight. He stopped in the ditch, I got out of the car, and just about petted him before it occurred to him to bleat and run off to his mom. So cute! Christi, our housemate, had a little lost fawn come up and be petted by her the other day when she was out for a run. This is a great place to live!
Later, we were on a walk in the wooded bird sanctuary, we saw lots and lots of geese families. Again, the little goslings were quite close to us, but this time there were hissing adults around to make sure I wasn’t tempted to pet them . . . or at least not overwhelmingly tempted. Some of those families were pretty large: 7 goslings, 9 goslings, even 11!
