Photo compliments of Matt Gillies, Peconic Bay Winery
"This little fellow brought mowing a field near the vineyard to a stop today. His sister (or brother — I didn’t check) lay 20 feet away- just as still. Neither one moved an inch as I photographed them. Just a few days old and with no scent and no movement, they will be safe until their mother returns to nurse them later. All work has been stopped in that field until these little guys get up and about in the next week or so. They’ll eat our grapes later this year and we won’t be happy about it, but for now…. we’ll look the other way.
