The grass around here is fairly tall and this year’s first born fawns still are not big enough to poke up over the tops of the grass in lots of places. Also, most of the time when you see a fawn as young as they are right now they run for it. A week old fawn can really run fast, too. If you’ve been coming to https://Bowhunting.net for any number of years you probably know I take thousands of deer pictures and put them on the website. And I had the good luck of taking a picture of a very young fawn this morning.
At that moment I did not have my real camera handy. Instead I had my iPhone and it all came down too fast for me to zoom in on the doe and fawn. That said, my picture shows something significant in the deer world. A newborn doe fawn is about the size of a chiwawa, but with longer legs. The doe is a young doe and not as large as it will be in a few years. So we see both of them and that brings to light the size difference of a doe and its newborn fawn.
I like the picture, maybe you will too.
