Now you don’t.

I feel so lucky that this little fawn and it’s mother have taken up residence in the front meadow.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends.♥

      Thanks! It’s one of the few spots of green grass around here since we’re so dry. I love the contrast of the grass and the the browns and reds on the fawn.

      Thanks Lenore! What a lovely morning. I spooked a young buck last night by accident. Patrick got home from fighting a fire and I ran out to greet him and the buck scattered! Didn’t mean to scare him but I was happy to see my man!

    All babies, even animal babies, find such wonder in the world. It’s fun to watch them discover as they explore. You have such a wonderful window into that world, Leah, and you capture it so poignantly. These are beautiful. Thank you, too, for answering all the comments. I appreciate being invited in and welcomed so warmly. Have a great one!

    These are great shots! So vivid. There’s a herd of urban deer I run by almost every day. They are so close and seem so tame, like someone’s pet dog. They are urban deer, though, and have simply adapted themselves to their new land. The other day I saw one on its hind legs eating apple blossoms from a high tree branch in a neighbor’s front yard. You’ve inspired me to bring my camera along to try capture some of them.

    Hello fellow Wyomingite. Great shot of the fawn. I was out hiking about a week ago- I wanted to hike fast for a good workout and left my camera in the truck. Well, you know what that means. As I walked along a small ridge I looked down into the hiding place of twin fawns in the tall grass! Dang! No camera! They were very young and I didn’t want to scare them out of the safe place where mama had stashed them. I had to console myself with simply watching them watching me.

    Hi Leah,

    Wow! Your pictures are truly breathtaking. You are so fortunate to be living so close to nature. So much space! I get such a sense of freedom when I see the beautiful landscapes and wonderful views, I love it. Your pictures of the little fawn are truly stunning. At first I thought it was a painting. The colors are so rich, and when you look into the eyes it feels like a private moment. You have captured it beautifully.

    Wishing you all the best!

    From Holland,

    Larissa

    So lovely Leah! Your photos make me feel like I’m right on the ranch. I bet the mom and fawn are pretty comfortable with you around. I can see the gold of dry grass in the background. Have there been many wildfires in the area? I’m way behind on reading due to a funky computer….I’ll start reading where I left off so I’m more informed. (:
