 My guests were bemoaning the fact that they hadn't seen any deer while they stayed here.   Last night though deer seemed to be everywhere.  It helped that Indy and I were taking a late afternoon walk through the fields.   The deer were just getting up from their daytime beds and they were hungry.  These two fawns noticed us a way off but decided we were too slow to be much of a threat at that distance.   They are still sporting spots but by next month will be totally independent of mom.

As we got closer to the house a group of deer jumped off through the meadow - just clearing the tall grass where they had been well hidden.  One little deer stayed put - hoping that standing still would be enough for me to pass her by.   It's true that if I hadn't seen her move earlier, I would have assumed all of the deer were gone.   Eventually being alone w/ a predator nearby was just too much for her to bear and she took off to join the rest of the herd.  Take a look and see if you would have noticed her.

Good one! I did not see her at first but took another look and then is obvious. Great Picture.
