It's cupcake Thursday. What better way to celebrate the almost weekend?
These ones are lemon with vanilla buttercream icing.
The whitetail deer does that have been hanging in my backyard are all having their babies. The fawns are so adorable. And so small.
These twins didn't belong to the doe right behind them - their mama was a little behind them in the further field. There's an old barbed wire fence behind the doe pictured here and the other mother is behind that.
There's their mama on the left in the photo below. There's the fence between the two female deer.
When the twins decided to return to their mama, one of them got all hyper and started bouncing around the adult deer like a goofball. But she went to the wrong mama deer. Her fellow twin happy followed her to the wrong mama. The wrong mama deer didn't want to put up with the playful babies are started kicking out at them.
The playful baby quickly realized her mama was on the other side of the old barbed wire fence, so to get away from the crazy kicking doe quickly, the baby jumped through the barbed wire fence!!
Not a good idea.
Of course her back legs both got caught in the fence - her upper body made it through. And then she was hanging in the fence, kicking like crazy.
I quickly put down the camera, opened the back door, and ran to the back porch.
Luckily I didn't have to intervene - the baby pulled free from the fence. I hope it's not too hurt from the barbed wire. The other baby walked around to the gate in the barbed wire fence and joined her mama like a civilized fawn.
Just another day in the life of a deer...
Sorry for the bad quality of the deer photos!
Happy almost weekend!
