I HAD BEEN SITTING IN ONE OF MY USUAL HAUNTS IN THE CUYAHOGA VALLEY NATIONAL PARK BETWEEN CLEVELAND AND AKRON, OHIO FOR ABOUT THREE HOURS ON A SUNDAY MORNING IN APRIL. NOTHING…BUT NOTHING INTERESTING HAD COME ALONG AND I FINALLY DECIDED TO PACK IT IN AND MOVE TO ANOTHER PART OF THE PARK. I PACKED UP MY GEAR AND STOOD UP, TURNED AROUND, AND STEPPED OVER THE LOG I’D BEEN SITTING ON, TOOK TWO STEPS, AND ON THE THIRD, ALMOST STEPPED RIGHT ON THIS LITTLE GUY.

    What a gorgeous little guy, Mike! Mama sneaked him in there behind your back— or maybe had to wait to get him out till you finally got bored and went away. Just never know what you’ll find underfoot/1 lol Fantastic photo- all good things come to those who get up to leave, I guess. LOL

    Oh my gosh, Mick!!! I have DREAMED of taking this photo!!! When I lived in Colorado (a couple of years ago) I would go to Cherry Creek State Park every day after work and cruise through the woods, hoping to find a baby fawn!!! I’m sooooo jealous…but, soooooo blessed to see this picture!!!
