Hides are Getting Darker

20090911-7

This doe was lying in our yard today. She didn’t seem to mind the slight drizzle that was falling at times because she seemed content to continue chewing her cud. Here in this photo you can see her mouth open. You can also see that her hide is beginning to get darker. Not long ago the deer had a tannish/red tint in their hides, but now with the fast-approaching fall their hides are getting darker. The deer are stocking up for the upcoming winter season when food will be more scarce. This is my most favorite time of the year and a lot is happening!
