A Treasured Guest


I've never heard so many "ohhs" and "ahhs" as when this little fawn makes its appearance. We've seen it several times in the last two weeks. It is always alone. We think that perhaps it's mother was the ill-fated deer you can read about here. This photo was taken beside our driveway. Since most of our land is wooded, we were kind of surprised that he came all the way our of the woods to eat along the fence line. He stayed there staring at us until the neighbor turned on a pretty loud rendition of "Rocky Top". We're hoping he'll come back to visit sometime.

Awww, we have one of these in our backyard, too. Fortunately ours still has its momma to depend on. I haven't been quick enough to get a picture of it yet. Too cute!
