not one but two...

How nice it was to spot this doe and her fawn, this morning. The little one enjoyed some breakfast, as Mom nibbled some grasses.
but as good Moms know..clean up is a part of every meal...she spent a few minutes licking his face ..

and neck..don't forget behind those ears..there's always food behind the ears!
on down to his front legs..
so he could, eventually romp through the tall grass. I met him on the other side of the path, where he was standing with his sibling!!
What a nice surprise that was!

These are great pictures! Since this doe and her fawns did not nibble on my roses I can say I really enjoyed seeing your photos.

Hi Tina, Oh--I love seeing the deer (fawns)... That 3rd picture of Mama licking the baby's neck is priceless. I can almost hear that baby saying "Quit bothering me, Mama!" ha ha

Have a great evening.
Hugs,
Betsy

This could be a children's story! So beautiful! The lighting was so nice - so soft. It was so sweet to see that doe cleaning her fawn! Loved this!!

Tina - just found you blog, coming from curious birder - nice photos especially the pileated - a tough bird to get good looks at, though I once watched one excavating a hole - chips flew everywhere. But that is 15 or more years ago.

With animals like these you could forget birds for a day or two. I know I could.
