Don't you just love the fall...cooler temperatures, all the leaves starting to change....I've been trying for the last several nights to photograph this mama dear and her two twin children who have taken up residence around our new shop in Fuquay. We have a good bit of woods behind us and every night, when the street out in front of the shop gets a bit more quiet, we've been catching her and the kids munching on all the acorns that have been dropping like crazy since the weather started to change.
I just can't get quite close enough yet! But, oh my gosh, are they not the cutest things! Maybe I'll have a photo later to share!
