Young Fawn for Saturday Critters

Its that time of year to keep a lookout for young babies of nature.  I have been hoping to see a young fawn and this morning I saw one.  I was driving down a country road and I spied an adult deer and a fawn wth it.

.  It appeared as if they were planning to cross the road so I slowed my car as I eased forward hoping not to scare them off and I pulled over to the roadside. I could see the young fawn beside its mother in the roadside grasses. Then the mother started across the road with the fawn close behind her.
then as most young are often curious, the fawn stopped midway across the highway and looked at my car. Perhaps
I should have attempted to frighten it so it could start to learn that crossing highways can be hazardous, but I just took its picture instead.
I am linking today to viewing Nature with Eileen which can be found at

We saw a doe and two young fawns on a logging road while we were out riding. They never left the road even after hearing and seeing us. We didn't want to stress them so held back. I walked closer to take some pictures then we went another way. - Margy
