Oh Hi! Nice to Meet You (White-tailed Deer Fawn) by 


I thought that maybe I was going to miss a shot of a fawn this year but I happened to come across this fellow on one of my walks last week. We both kind of surprised each other at the same time (hense the title). This one let me get a few captures, then decided it would be better to wait for his mother under the cover of some deep brush. I said goodbye and thank you for the shots. :)

This was taken at Sapsucker Woods (Cornell Lab of Ornithology) in Ithaca NY.

The scientific name of this species is: Odocoileus virginianus.

    Ooh lucky you, Robert! These fawns are so beautifully marked, and this is a healthy looking baby. Great shot. Cat:)

  • Thank you Cat! There is no hunting in the area I caught this, so the deer aren’t quite as skittish. Makes for getting deer shots a lot easier. ;)
