Showdown in the Meadow

Posted in Nature, Photography by leahyetter on September 20, 2012

Earlier this summer, Peekaboo Fawn  caused a ruckus in the meadow.

A cute ruckus I must add.

With a glance to her right, she took off to her left like something was after her.

Turns out she was after something. Chasing turkeys was the name of the game. While mom was grazing, Peekaboo was nipping at the gobblers while they were feasting on bugs.

She stalked and harassed them like a cat hunts a mouse.

She’d get down low, wiggle her booty then jump in the air running them all in different directions.

She’d give them a break…

…and then go at them again. This went on for several minutes until she heard my quiet giggles.

Her curiosity led her closer to me.

We stared at each other for a little while and then she took off to play, er um, to harass the turkeys until bedtime.

Here’s hoping you make room in your day for a little fun. It’ll put a smile on your face every time. 🙂

    That must have been fun to watch, Leah. Peakabo fawn is adorable!
    There is a turkey that lives near a house we pass en route to the boys’ school. I’ve tried countless times to capture a shot of the bird. I tried this morning, too, but the traffic didn’t stop long enough for me to get a good one. It’s become a joke with me and the boys, because the cars never seem to stop long enough when I have the camera – only when I do not have the camera.

    She is so beautiful! I love that description of her ounce – my cat used to do that same little pre-pounce butt-wiggle.
