Sony Cyber Shot 100V
July 2013
When I looked out the window last evening, I saw 2 young fawns about 5 or 6 months old out in the yard. I grabbed my camera and thought I could sneak out the front door and capture them in the back yard before they saw or heard me. But when I came around the house, there was the mama, hiding in the thickets and had apparently called them because they were no where in sight.
Dedicated to protectiveness of a loving mother for her babies.

It is my hope to always bring out something good and positive in all that I do! Despite our outward differences of faith, religion, culture, or even global location, one thing we all as humans embrace is a sense of acceptance, and belonging. Our art is an expression of who we are and a language that needs no words. It is my hope that my work depicts all that is loving and positive in which to edify others. I give all my thanks to my God who has uniquely and wonderfully created us in His image.

    :)) What a good mother deer. If you saw them once Viv….most likely you will see them again. I have a single fawn with it’s mom and a mom with a set of twins. The single one is getting used to me….the mother too. I walk out and talk all sweet. lol The mom and twins are walking off…not running though like they were in the beginning. Keep going out. They will get used to you. Precious capture of Mom the protector. :))

  • I wish they wouldn’t run off but they have yet to ever stand there, they are very skitterish around here but they do make their rounds every few days. It was cute watching them run around and play in the yard though. She is a good mom, she was watching the whole time.

    You have to sneak up to them….sort of. :)) I take a step at a time….behind a tree if possible…lol….then whenever the mother looks up, I look around like I am looking for a preditor. Usually the mother will keep grazing. then I go inch by inch. LOL …taking pictures as I go. :))

  • Ha ha, I have no where to hide! This is all open space and they can hear us even inside the house! I believe they are like this because they do get poached around here. It would be nice if they were more calm.

    We have so many here and they are so used to people that they pay no attention – which is sort of worrying. They get hit by cars so often.

  • My sister says the ones by her are like that too, no fear! These ones are always on the run because they do get poached around here and they do also get hit by cars alot! They are always on the lookout when they come in our yard, they hear us even inside the house!

    Mine around here are hunted when the season gets here. My area is bad for that…so I try to make them feel safe here at my place so they will keep coming back. At first this year when they saw me they would run off quick. All I would see is white tails bobbing in the air. lol But I put corn out for them and sometimes peanuts…..and I have a wild apple tree at the edge of the property. And when I see them I go out and watch them and talk to them. All my dogs are behind the fences ….sometimes barking. That never seems to bother them. I hope you can get out there and get some good shots. Once they know you’re safe they will stay for you…as long as you aren’t TOO close. lol :))

  • I have an apple tree that they come and eat from when they are ready, that’s the only time they stay a little longer and don’t run off. They see me sitting on the porch watching them. I have gotten many pics of them in the past just not any yet this year, but I hope to soon. They are fun to watch. We’ve had about 12 at one time gather in the yard.
