Flighty Fawn

As sunset approached, I looked out the dining room window and saw them grazing on the grass.  With camera in hand, I captured an image.


Something over my way made the young one curious.  He approached the house.


Hey!  You at the window, is that a camera in your hand?  I’m out of here!


It’s amazing to me how fast this guy can run.  Mom has seen it before, and it’s no big deal to her.


She continued her grass-grazing activities while continuing to be alert to her surroundings.

  1. It’s great that you have does and fawns so often to enjoy. I’m not sure as to what has happened in this area as we used to have deer crossing this area all the time as they were heading towards a larger woods to our west. Maybe it was the hunt for deer with the “wasting disease” that took place recently !

    • Thanks, Vee. Photoshop Elements is my rescue tool. It does an amazing job in cleaning up the glares and anomalies caused by shooting through glass in a room with windows on two sides. Sure was fun.

  2. Oh, look at them! Such a sweet sight to see on your own front yard. I am envious…although I hear deer are destructive.

    Happy Belated birthday to you. I know I missed it while I was away on hiatus. I trust it was a good day and you celebrated joyfully. Wishing you and Sylvia a VERY Happy Anniversary this week! What wonderful celebrations back to back!

    • They can be very destructive. Lost a favorite cedar to those deer one hard winter. We do enjoy watching them, however.

      On my birthday, we had lunch with our son and daughter-in-law. In the evening, Briana called and talked with us for a long time. It was a perfect day.
