Newborn white tail deer fawn, resting under a pine tree in my yard.The mother was about 30 feet away, in the woods, waiting for the fawn to come to her (I saw the mother after I turned the camera off). When fawns are that small, the mother often leaves them alone for awhile, while she goes off to forage & graze. During the time she's gone, the fawn lays perfectly still, like a statue, and will not flinch, unless you're right on top of it. It's best to just leave a fawn alone, if you find one laying down in tall grass somewhere - the mother WILL be back; the fawn is not sick or abandoned.
That's my husband at the end, with his hand down his pants, pulling an Al Bundy. =0)~~~~~
I guess we're kind of lucky (in some ways) as we get white tail deer coming through our yard every day, several times, to feed on the various berry bushes & fruit trees. It's nice to have wildlife coming daily through the yard! In other ways it's rather UNLUCKY, since we tried to grow a garden twice, and both times the garden was DECIMATED by the deer [tip: "wolf piss," a so-called deer repellant, doesn't do shit. Except make your garden smell like fermented piss]. We tried a 3rd time growing veggies closer to the house, and even then, I had to throw netting over the plants to keep them from being eaten by both deer and rabbits. And, all the berries & fruit that *I* like to eat - mulberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, pears & apples - get eaten by the deer before they get a chance to ripen, so I hardly get any!
Sorry bout the video quality; done with a low res flip camera.
