So close...

...I almost stepped on it!

Hours old Blacktail Deer Fawn
"As the deer pants for the water brooks,
So my soul pants for Thee, O God."
Psalm 42:1
Edited to ease your concern:
Gentleman Farmer and I have been watching the mother
for weeks as she has grazed our little wooded pasture.
This fawn was born earlier this morning.
Mother was not far off when I took this picture.
We are blessed every year with the birth of
at least one on our property.
I am using this post to join Cindy

How totally incredible! I have never seen anything like that before. I hope he will be fine and well.

Oh, I miss the days of fawns in the backyard (though I don't miss the days of deer-eating-my-garden).

Newborn fawns have no scent so the mamas can leave them to go graze and they are safe from predators. What a wonderful design by the Master Designer!

Almost born on my birthday. =) I think we may have a little one born in our field this year, too. A mama has been lingering the last couple of days...=)

It must be wonderful to live around such treasures.
