We live across the road from a lake/nature area that is one of our favorite places to walk. We do see wildlife there, like the turkeys that took over the road last week. But this kind of up close and personal wildlife sighting is unusual. This time I had the camera which is unusual.
When we first say the fawns they were directly in front of us on the sidewalk. Mom was nowhere in sight. We stopped in amazement at these two little ones, still with their spots. Then we started walking very slowly toward them talking quietly and gently. I was able to start taking an occasional photo without frightening them.
Mom intervenes and eventually gets the fawns into the tall grass.
They stay in the tall grass, feeding, until finally, the white flags fly and they go bounding across the field, disappearing over the ridge.
