My What Big Ears

Early this summer, a number of the local deer gave birth. We've been watching the fawns for weeks. This little family travels through our yard everyday.

For awhile, a doe would hide her fawn in a little copse of Grambel's Oak at noon while she fed. I discovered this by accident when I went out to take some pictures of a cactus bloom. It sure startled me when the fawn took off!

These fawns seemed to have doubled in size since I first saw them.


Be sure to visit Camera Critter's for more animal photos.

Aww, that is just so cute. Those ears are a little big now but baby will grow into them. It is so great that you could get that close.
Beautiful photos.
