The day after we returned from the big three-week trip to the Midwest, our across-the-street neighbor told me that while we were away she’d seen two white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginiana) on our lawn, a fawn and its limping mother. Some days later, on June 28, I was driving down our street on my way home when, sure enough, I spotted the deer on our front lawn. I pulled over to the curb, slowly and quietly got out, put a long lens on my camera, and took some pictures. I noticed that the doe still limped as she walked and that not one but two fawns were following her. You’re looking at one of them.
(I’ve been photographing back here in Texas for five weeks already but you’re still going to see more pictures from Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana.)
