One Happy Family

The wildlife viewing on my walk up to the office has been great lately.  Not many people on campus, plus lawn watering, makes this a kind of oasis for the deer and the turkeys.  This family was so engrossed in feeding on the green that I was able to approach to within 20 feet with my phone camera.  I backed off before they tried to run away.  I've also seen a good variety of insects landing on what remains of the daisies and on the thistles which are in peak form.  Discovered a new species (new to me) of butterfly the other day.  Will post photos of bugs on thistle next.  Meanwhile, Happy August.  Be careful of the heat.
