Coal and I found a fawn, prettypammie took pictures


Fawn, resting Fawn
Fawn, resting
Fawn
Fawn, peeking Looking...a little worried

Darn...I see them, and I know they see me.

But our little fawn is staying put, hoping mama will come to the rescue.
Where's the fawn? Zooming in
Where's the fawn?
The camouflage against the leaf litter is remarkable. I would never have spotted this fawn on my way down the driveway if it hadn't been moving as Coal and I went down the hill.
Zooming in
Pam started to zoom in, revealing our woodland friend.
Fawn at rest Fawn, zoomed closer

Quite obvious, up close.
Fawn, another zoom series Fawn, zoomed more

From this angle, the camouflage was not as good. The doe did a really good job...the berm abutting the driveway, a ring of discarded stumps, and the adjacent woodpile [not pictured] make this a really safe nest...if it weren't for the big gravel driveway cutting right past it!

Fawn, up close If I can't see them...

If I can't see them...
...maybe they can't see me?
