Deers and Apples
The apple tree near my computer is dropping a lot of fruit this year. The squirrels act like it's a Whitman's Sampler, taking a bite out of one then dropping it and going to the next.
The Deer Mom and her fawns were just having an early supper on the grasses and apples. I noticed the little one was having a hard time getting hold of the apples which aren't that big. He got it into his mouth but couldn't grab onto it so it would roll out onto the ground. Finally he got a good grip on it and smashed it up and gulped it down. No incisors, apparently.
