Thanks to photographer Bobbi Wisby for sharing her first sighting with the rest of us.



  • So adorable!it’s really nice to see,maybe it’s a sign of good things ahead.sweet

  • Yep, Momma ran off the road. One fawn stayed with her the other just laid down in the middle of the road. I had to move it off the road. Mom stood by and watched. She came right back and got after I drove past.

  • Very cute!
    I remember seeing my first fawn. It wasn’t long legged like Bambi or a horse colt, rather short stubby legs with fat body. I thought it was deformed. Now I know better, of course.

  • “dots like the creator’s hands were still white with clay when they set it on its feet…”

    Wow! that’s so beautifully put….I may have to “borrow” that 🙂

  • A few weeks ago I was in the woods and proceeding cautiously in shorts through some poison oak. I had my attention on the ground right in front of me and walked up within a few feet of a fawn that was hiding. It jumped up, I yelled, but it went only ten feet away, so we had some nice quality time together. I turned and slowly moved away and it bounced a few bounces, and waited til I had moved on and then it returned to its hideaway. Later in the afternoon I saw it trailing along after its mother. Sweet.

  • I like how they lay so flat and motionless. I heard, but I don’t know, that a fawn has no odor that a predator can pick up on, and if they lay real still chances are that they can avoid being eaten. It is a cinch that they can’t outrun anything that could eat them, so laying still is their only option. Mother Nature is a Bitch!
