Fawns

I was doing some work in my dining room today when out of the corner of my eye I saw something run past the window.  I looked out to find two fawns running into our neighbor's yard.  They found their way to the pear tree and began munching away.  Very carefully I made my way outside to photograph them.  They were pretty busy eating and didn't pay much attention to me.

They kept making this face while they were eating ... like they were choking or something.  It was funny.

And they would stick their tongues out at me occasionally.  :)

I suspect they were making the funny faces because of the pear stems.  That's my theory anyway.  I mean, who can swallow a pear stem 
and not choke?  :)

Keira and I slowly made our way out into the yard which is where I took these photos from.  They didn't run although they kept a close watch on us.  We wondered where their mama was because we never saw her.  After about 10 minutes it started thundering and they ran off.  Hopefully to find shelter before the storm.  I imagine their bellies were pretty full by then anyway.

Wonderful captures! I'm so impressed that they did not run. We occasionally have a mother and her fawn cross the terrace in our backyard, but they get spooked easily. We even had a fawn try to jump our fence a couple weeks ago to get in our backyard. When I went to check out the commotion it ran. I love the deer with his tongue sticking out!

oh you got fantastic shots.

These are what you should frame. Oh I love them.

Be great gifts for a birthday gift.

They have frames with just the snap and no big frames.

More an artsy look frames.

My son uses them. Of course he is a comercial artist.

Awesome!
I've always had a special fondness for twin fawns.

It's funny.. we live in the north woods where everyone flocks to go deer hunting. But you would NEVER get a chance to be this close & casual with a fawn or any deer.
They all hide in the woods & are very alert & on their toes - with predators of all kinds.
We live in hundreds of acres of wildlife habitat, but don't see them. I guess they have all that habitat to eat, live & stay hidden in .
But my friends & family in the city have "wild"life right in their yards! :)
