Here's a closer view of this cute fawn that I posted earlier. I was the first human he/she had ever seen. The fawn was looking me over as much as I was he/she. I didn't get too close, shot a few quick shots and left the fawn to rest, as it had only been out in the world for a few hours. As the fawns grow they become fairly tame around here, since they are quite common and no hunting is allowed. Cars are their primary hazard. They appreciate the great salads (flowers, new shrubs) we have for them. I keep a water trough full and fresh for them from May to October. They have become a welcome and very enjoyable part of our family (right Mike!).
We look forward to each years new arrival of whitetail fawns, and this was our first for 2010. They are so innocent, pure and beautiful. He/She could barely walk, but did manage to get here for a rest. Took a few photos and left.
I'm always surprised that the mothers are so nonchalant and wander off without concern even when she knew I was approaching her fawn. Guess they know over the years that I mean no harm.
Many more does are expecting, some large with twins, so many more happy sightings and fun lies ahead.
