Mommy Deer-est

One morning last week, I opened our living room curtains and had to run for my camera. I apologize for the poor quality of this picture. I wish it were in better focus. But this fawn was so beautiful in the early morning light, I had to share.

I kept watching, and as he walked around our yard, I moved to another room to get more (and hopefully better) pictures.

We had seen two fawns in the yard recently, so I really wasn’t surprised to see the other one emerging from the marsh grass.  But I was thrilled to see Mama Deer with them. (She must have seen a dirty spot on his leg.)

Guess he’s presentable now.

You may recall a post I did a few months ago with photos of a crippled deer in our yard. Well, that’s Mama Deer! This next picture is difficult to look at; it’s also sad to see her walk. But she’s been around for a couple years, so evidently she’s doing okay.

And she’s obviously a good mommy. 

The End.
