First Fawn



There's a new resident of the fields and forests of Ozark County, and at our place, it's the first fawn of the year. We saw it a week ago, on what was probably its first day on the planet, a tiny thing with spindly legs, sticking to its mother like a teenager to her cellphone.




In one week, it's grown a lot and gained a little independence...




...and a lot of curiosity. Every blade of grass is a wonder to the small creature. 
Come to think of it, every blade of grass is a wonder.




This spotted adventurer can change direction in a hurry when its mother signals "dinner time".




It flies like an arrow out of a bow...




...back to its mother's side.

Life is good.



Note: In the images with 2 fawns, they are not twins, but blended photos of the same fawn.

I hope I can always be awed by the simple gifts of nature that are so wondrous and new, again and again. Your fawn is just that -- something to never be taken for granted.

They are very lovely! Do juveniles colors like that change when they mature? Will the spots stay on?

Absolutely so very precious. Just this past Thursday one of the local does finally brought her twins down into the yard. I got word that a doe is walking with a very tiny fawn near us that you can hardly see the spots on, it's so small. I have not seen it yet~
