Deer Hot and Dry

I went outside to take a picture of these clouds

It is still HOT and DRY..

As I was taking the pictures, this doe came out of the woods and went straight to the extra water tank we put out for the critters..She took a really long drink and started grazing what little grass we have left.  She did not care that I was standing in the yard with a camera.

Deer and Turtle

It is still very dry here, but on a good note, today it's cloudy keeping the temps in the mid 80's.  All the ponds are dried up now and the wild life in the area are searching for water.  We have put out an extra water tank in the yard for the critters.  It's been very interesting to see what comes to the water.  These two deer were at it first thing this morning.  We also have two other stock tanks that are very busy.  Our pond still has water, but the dogs won't let anything but their goats drink out of it.

Barn Guest Again..

John found this little guy today in the woods.  Must have fell out of his nest.  It was having problems with bugs and bees by the time I got home.  Put it in the bucket and feed it some red meat.  Really getting an attitude by dark.  Think it may be a baby hawk.
Update:  Baby Hawk was picked up by Missouri Dept. of Conservation and taken to a rescue home.  Little guy started eating on it's own before it left.  Thanks Eric!! After all it was 100 degrees.
