Three is not a crowd

At least not when it’s your own kids.  The doe and her twins from last year visited the backyard again on a rainy, cold morning for a little breakfast snack.

It's clear from this alignment of their heads that the twins still have some growing to do.  They are shorter and still have smaller heads than mom.  Their ears appear to have darker hair around the outside margin than mom's, although that could be the light.  The glare from the window cuts right through the middle of the photo--sorry.

This doe looks too skinny to be pregnant, so there may  not be anew set of fawns to follow her around this summer.

I wonder if this doe will produce another set of twins this spring.  Will she drive these youngsters away then?  Or will they help raise the next generation?
