Baby Deer - 5/29/2014
It is May 2014 and it is time for the fawns to start showing up in our back yard. As has been the case in the past, this baby is laying right in the middle of our lawn. The grass is ready to cut so only the ears stick up above the grass.
Mom is off feeding and will return in an hour or two. In the mean time, the baby will lay motionless in the grass even if you walk right up to it as I did for the photo. I was only there for a few seconds and was still about four feet away from the fawn when I took the final photos. I didn't want to scare the little guy/gal too much.
Maybe we will see the fawn again when it is walking with mom.
If you want to see more, here is a link to the 2012 posting for a different fawn.
