My sisters were over visiting today, and they and the parents figured they'd all go down and feed and visit the horses (I'm not a morning person, was still having coffee). On the way down, they spooked a pair of whitetail does who were beside the trail. One took off across the hay field, and the other into the bush. I guess something about it had struck them as odd, so they went and took a look at the spot where the does had been standing, and hidden in the tall grass was this little fawn (what a cutie!).
So they texted me, told me to grab my camera, and here you go! Baby animals are the cutest thing to walk the planet, and I feel very fortunate to have gotten these pics. Don't worry, we didn't disturb the fawn too much, and mama will be back for it likely this evening. And no, those myths about human scent making mamas reject their babes are complete bullshit. So long as we stay away from that spot, she'll be back for the fawn. We'll check on the spot in a few days, and if we find it there, we'll know then that something happened to mama.
