roe family unit

This looks like a mature doe with her twins of last Spring,at least one of which is a male as it has no anal tush

Mum and the kids

Hi notpop,
Thanks for the corrections....I did not spot the juvenile male...but you are right...of course!
I have one more possible family unit to track down a mile or so away (I am positive it is not this one as there is a main road and river between them). I will attempt to make a better observation next time...but I welcolm your comments.
Best wishes,
