I happened upon this fawn while walking through a trail with my young daughter and her friend. I didn't see the mother anywhere around and the fawn, being so young, didn't realize yet that she should be cautious of us. Even so, I didn't want to stick around too long, as I had a job, as a mother, to protect those I had under my care. :-) We only saw her sitting here so peacefully and then after a short length of time spent gazing at her, she got up and walked off slowly. I've lived in Michigan all my life and it's the first I have seen a young fawn so close. It was a great experience for myself and the girls with me. Thanks for commenting on it.
