King of the Forest




This little fawn, with a glint in his eye, is a feisty one.






He came out with his mother this week, late in the evening. 





There was a short stand-off with a turkey, until the turkey stood his ground...




and the fawn scampered away.





When the doe was tired of babysitting, she gave the fawn a kick, 
and the little one responded by kicking back, and almost climbing on his mother's back. 
The turkeys were polite enough to pretend not to notice.

                                      



We'll be watching this one.





One of these days, we expect, he'll be ruling the forest.


Linking with Saturday's Critters

How cute! He does appear to be an inquisitive one..I hope he doesn't make a menace of himself by eating your plants and bushes! Have a wonderful weekend.

Very cute series and I liked the way you posted here – dramatic! The turkeys attitude is indeed smart and I also liked the spotlight on the deer in the first one.

Fantastic shots, Connie!

I've gotten closeups of the little fawns, but never the turkeys. They're too wary.
