It was a most special summer sighting! A glance out the window brought quite a surprise. My brother had spotted the wildlife and called me to come and see the amazing scene. It is not unusual to see deer in our area, but I expect it more in the winter months.
Somewhat hidden by summer’s lush, green foliage, she was slowly making her way toward the woods. The beautiful deer stepped into a clearing, and then came another surprise. A young fawn was following her mother. I was trying to get both in the camera‘s view when I noticed more movement. It was a second fawn! As I was trying to take in the special moment, it was almost impossible to capture the three deer in one photo! As they continued toward the woods, I hurried outdoors to get a better angle. For a brief time, the mother stood quietly looking at me. The two fawns were motionless as well. I stepped slowly and quietly hoping to get a better picture. Suddenly they turned, and I could see the three white-tailed deer scampering into the woods. I have seen many deer over the years but never a mother and two of her young. How special on an ordinary day to see nature at its best!!!
