Momma and Fawns

momma deer with babies

Every year we watch until the local momma deer expose their newborn fawns to the outside world. There are several doe mothering fawns not too far from the back of the house. We believe they give birth inside the pasture among the trees where dogs and coyotes can’t enter. Normally in the evening hours, when momma needs a drink, is when we first see the fawns. They will pass through a grassy lane to reach a fresh water spring. Of course the tall grass may tempt them to stop and dine. There are two fawns in the photo hidden in the grass. The trio is approximately 50 feet from where I stood taking photos.
