Oh Dear Roe Deer


Y’all know Bambi from the Disney movie, right?  Well, the movie was based on the book Bambi, A Life in the Woods.  In the book, Bambi was a roe deer.  But in the movie, the Disney folks changed Bambi to the better-known-in-the-US white-tailed deer.

Wikipedia describes roe deer as primarily crepuscular.  (Sweet Baby G describes me as primarily creepy.)  Crepuscular means active during dawn and dusk.  We spied a couple of these deer making their way down the side of the vineyard in the afternoon.  And these photos were snapped around 10pm.  So either our roe deer are a few hours off cycle, they’re not roe deer, or Wiki is all wet.

Regardless, enjoy.  We’ll try to get a few more pictures of them!
