Peace is a Mother’s Love

Posted in Nature, Photography by leahyetter on June 13, 2012


I spotted our little fawn a few mornings ago hopping and frolicking in the tall grass by the house.


Bambi would quickly check in with mom for a bath…


…and a scrub behind the ears.


There is always time for a suckle.


She spotted me on the porch so she told the little one to take off and hide for the day.


Bambi is getting bigger so traveling with mom is happening more and more.  I’ve seen them by the river and in the meadows further out. But she does check in beside the house every once in a while. Such peaceful beauty just outside the front door makes my heart melt.
I hope this mid-week case of motherly love helps you get through the week. We’ve had our fair share of fires and then wind in the form of funnels so we sure could use some comfort from mother nature… for the rest of the summer please ma’am. 😉

    The mother is gorgeous! Her eyes are beautiful, and I’ve never seen a deer’s coat with the white hair highlights. The fawn … too cute for words. These are wonderful, Leah. I am glad you have these neighbors as a source of entertainment and sense of wonder.

    Lovely! Hope the fires stay clear of you for the summer. We’re having more than our share next door in Colorado.

    Young and their Mom’s arriving daily here as well! This morning a Mother Mallard and her little ones in the pouring rain, eating the cracked corn I put out for squirrels. Baby birds making their way to the feeders as well for the tasty sugar water I make for them! Spring/Summer is my favorite time in the yard. Thanks for sharing the morning ritual of the Doe and her Fawn

    Utterly lovely. Thank you ever so much for sharing the beauty of nature that surrounds you out there on the plains. Hope none of the fires threaten to infringe on the beauty and grace that you share with us so often. Your blog is like a breath of fresh air and gives me a wonderful feeling of almost being back home.

    FABULOUS! Your pictures made me homesick. I grew up in the country, but now live in the big city. I miss the heart-stopping beauty of moments like this. You did an incredible job of capturing the moment with the camera, and your story line is flawless.

    Thanks for sharing.

      Hey thanks! So glad you like these and that I can bring comforts of “home” to you. 😉

    Ah I’m not caught up yet, but these images were too AMAZING to pass by…and then I spotted some fire news. Hope all is well!
