Fawning over Bambi
Over at Archie’s he reminisces about the five scariest scenes in children’s movies. He mentions several really terrifying moments (the childcatcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is bone chilling) but he didn’t mention my most frightening scene–the one where Bambi’s mom is killed.
I took this photo above just after the doe bounded across the road and her fawn was stuck on the far side with me separating them. This little one is so young he can’t really conceive that he might be in danger. The doe on the other hand was quite concerned–like me, after seeing Bambi, she knows her worst fears can come true.
