First Fawn!!

This morning, I had the blinds in my bedroom open while I was working away at my computer. I registered a bit of movement and looked up in time to see a bunch of spots, two pair of wobbly legs, big ears and dark eyes staring back at me. This is the first Mule Deer (Odocoileus hemionus) fawn I’ve seen this season and it made my heart smile!! I wasn’t fast enough getting to my camera to snap any pics before the skiddish youngster trotted out of view, but here’s an honorary pic from the archives to celebrate the occasion. (I love the expression of the foreground fawn in this photo and the whimsical out-of-focus background that the tail-end of its twin sibling provides.)
