Fawn Season

Hide and seekThese fawns are probably just a few weeks old.  They’re tiny little things, not much bigger than our cat.

We learned a few things about fawns the other weekend. The mother deer sometimes leaves them while she goes off and forages.  And they just nap.  Like, all day.  Just sit there and hide in the grass.  We didn’t want to get too close to them because we didn’t want to spook them, but I got a few pics.

Mom's back Mother finally returned later in the day and picked them up.  Would have been nice if she paid us for day care service since we looked after them pretty much all afternoon.  But no.  She just came by and ate more of our grass.

And she stuck her tongue out at me.
