Deer Day Care

We have frequently had deer in our backyard, sometimes as many as five or six (last year), but I have never seen three babies at once. Except this one time. (Please ignore the large tree in the middle of the photo. I love the having a maple tree out back, but it really gets in the way of my photography!)

Here are the fauns with an adult--maybe the mommy? Do deer have multiple babies? Or maybe they're not hers and she's just watching them? So their mommies could...go to work? What would a mommy deer do sans baby?

Maybe we'll see them next year when they're all grown up. Of course, there's no way to tell them apart, so we'll never really know. Maybe we should put up a salt lick...
