Six baby skunks were meandering around on our driveway! They were so adorable! But they were very bold! They just walked right up to us! My dad and I sat down, and the skunks began to climb on my dad’s legs. It was a little bit unnerving! But they were super cute! They even made of strange noise. Notice that there is only one primarily black skunk with stripes. The rest are mostly white. Also they seemed to find refuge by hiding behind this tree.

"Violet, wake up. There's a deer in the field and I think it has a fawn," Margaret said, bending over me.
I turned over groggily in bed, not really caring, just wanting those last five minutes of sleep.
"Oh."
"Don't you want to see?"
"Not really."
Margaret left, and, after those five minutes, I got out of bed and went downstairs. No one else was up yet, and, mildly interested in the deer, I went outside to see if it could still be there.
Indeed, there was a deer in the field, and I thought I saw a fawn under it. So I got the camera and approached the fence. It bounded away (previous observation), and, where it had been standing, I discovered two tiny twin fawns! The grass was all flattened down, and I saw no sign of the placentas. I'm guessing the mother had already eaten it. (Do they do that to hide it from predators?) The last photo is probably my favorite.
