'

You try taking pictures of deer 25' away and you tell me what happens. Actually take a picture, show me and then be sarcastic.

I would say average size 250ibs. The cubs will probably leave mom by early to mid summer. They stay with her for 1.5 years and those in your yard are yearlings. Great shots. I also have a hard time getting wildlife shots. Im better with landscape/scenary pictures.
I bet that fox has a den close by. You should go look for it. Usually the parents take turns guarding the den as the kits play outside.

I had bear take my garbage a few weeks ogo and my dog chased a cub up the tree last week in the yard. Today hiking I spooked 2 cubs and mom. They were about 20 yards from me.

She was sitting nice and comfortable outside my study window.

Then I barely tapped the window after I shot the other pix thru and she heard it and sprung up at once in defense.
