I was hoping I might see some deer this morning while driving along a country road. I pulled to the side to take pictures of a wild apple tree which had beautiful red fruit. when I looked up from my picture taking I saw this beautiful fawn in front of my car looking at me.
This beautiful creature appeared to be by itself. Apparently the mother doe will wean her young by September or October. This fawn looked quite large to be a spotted baby and I am assuming it has already separated from its mother.
This was a wonderful encounter to begin my morning drive with. I was hoping to see some Canada Geese or maybe a Great Blue Heron but the only nature creature whose image that I carried home in my camera was this young deer.
