Deer Family

Boyce, Virginia.

I went to a lecture at Cool Spring today and made a slight detour through the State Arboretum on the way home. I was not planning to get out of the car but when I spotted fawns, I pulled over and walked to the fence to get pictures.

They are on the grounds of Tuleyries next to the arboretum. Both properties were once part of the estate owned by Joseph Tuley, Jr., who built a mansion here around 1830.

Allow me to show you how hot it was this afternoon. I took a photo of the indicator on my dash.
That's 40.5° C.
Saturday's Critters.
