Mom Had Her Fawn

I don’t live in the country. But I do live on a deer trail. I don’t know where they come from or where they go but you can see deer passing by the house at any hour of the day or night. One time, I counted 17 deer in my side yard, I kid you not. Usually it’s just a few. Sometimes I catch them asleep there in the dark but they’re gone when the sun comes up.

This little guy must have just been born. I saw its mother heavily pregnant with uncomfortable-looking leggy bumps sticking out just a few days ago.

    As gentle and bucolic as this scene appears, you’d best wait if you wanted to, say, take out the trash or pick up the mail. Wild deer, as I have learned from living in this semi-urban setting, are not like Bambi. Her weapons are her hooves and those powerful legs. She would clobber you if she felt threatened. And it wouldn’t take much with her baby nearby.
