Dedicated to the spring mommy’s and their babies

In this image I focused more on the sweet little fawn than the mother.
Deer mate during the late autumn. Dominant males (bucks) court each female (doe) for about a week and may mate with up to four does per season. Mature does usually give birth to twins some 6.5 to 7 months later. The young (fawns) weighs a little more than 3.5 kg, very similar to that of humans. Mule Deer fawns have light spots on the upper back. Fawns lie hidden for up to four hours at a time; the mother approaching them only to nurse and clean them, keeping them scent-free. Fawns begin sampling vegetation (their main food as adults) at two weeks and are fully weaned at four months of age. They generally stay with their mother for a year or more. Most are sexually mature at 1.5 years of age.
