A babe in the woods

During my latest visit to Peter Desrochers Country Knolls Memorial Trails in the Town of Clifton Park, I happened across this wonderful sight –

Fawn of white-tailed deer

Not far from there, I then saw a lone doe to whom I presumed that little fawn belonged.  All of which reminded me about some helpful tips when you come upon a fawn; please read.

My visit was to continue my ongoing wildflower inventory at this destination and I was very pleased to tally more than a dozen additional species.  Next spring, I will post a wildflower field guide for this property, similar to those I’ve compiled for a number of area nature preserves, parks and trails.

I did observe these blooms today –
