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.
