A wild deer herd has befriended us, and in the early summer, Eva, the matriarch of the herd, always brings her two or three day old babies nearby, letting us have a close look. This year Eva had three fawns. Two girls and a boy. For the first days of their lives the fawns are mostly sleeping alone in the woods. Eva spends her day going from fawn to fawn, caring for them until they are able to walk around. That sometimes takes a couple days. Because we live in the middle of their territory, they've been watching us closely for generations, and they really like to eat our clover lawn, we have deer in our yard every day.

For some reason, this year the females and the fawns were much more vocal than we have heard in past years. The one deer who is very loud in this video is a young female. Perhaps her youth gives her exceptional vocal chords. Maybe her baby is hard of hearing. In any case, it's an astounding and alarming sound from an animal that is normally known for its quiet grace.

The musical track featured in this video is titled:
"Die Liebenden" (The Lovers)
recorded live in concert - featured on the new CD "Ananda" by Starseed:

The interaction of those deer with humans is wonderful. I love the way they were so accepting of them. I wish all wildlife would never have to fear humans.

Do they ever groom you? I have a yearling buck who is free to roam like these deer, he doesn't go far and he thinks he is part of the family. If I am working in the shop or sitting on the porch and allow him to do it he will groom my entire head.  I have to shower afterwards but he seems to enjoy it so that I allow him to do it.

Thanks for your sweet videos!  It's wonderful to see humans peacefully coexisting with nature, rather than trying to hunt and destroy nature.  How kind of you to share your yard with these beautiful, majestic creatures.

I wish i had a deal like that...with all those friendly deer in my yard every day. I think if you add a few bunnies and a friendly squirrel or 2, that would be as close to living in paradise as possible

Paradise for animals too, since they've no predator, no accident risks, no stress of dangers.
