A buck for an apple

We shook the last of the apples out of our tree and wanted to see what wildlife might still be checking for the last few morsels.

I gathered up all the half-eaten apples and put them in front of the game camera for one last peek.

And we finally see the buck!  We knew there had to be one but had not seen him until now.

We knew something was coming back to the tree.  I speculated it was raccoons.  But these mule deer (black-tails) were the only wildlife we caught on the camera.  I’m not sure if the doe is the adult or one of the fawns.  A few weeks ago we found one of the fawns had died.  😦
