Wellesley College nature

I heard about "wildflower meadows" on Wellesley College's campus, so I thought I'd drive over and check it out.  Wellesley College outdoor gardens are open to the public.  The meadows that I walked around today were not even part of the botanic gardens.  I'll have to return for another visit is in order to explore the official gardens.  I have a feeling, though, that visiting now ~~before the students return~~ probably resulted in a lot more nature than when the full student body is on campus.

In an attempt to get closer to the Baltimore Oriole, I stumbled upon two does and two fawns in the meadow!

Double vision!
