A Special Moment !

I do not usually post only one picture,but today is different.
Jake and I spent yesterday at A Rocha,hiking and just simply enjoying nature.
The birds were singing heartily,but,alas,they were hidden among the leaves.
Hiking along the well groomed trails was very enjoyable.
We met up with another group of hikers,who informed us of a special find.
Just a little ways up the trail,look what we found.
This little White-tailed fawn must be just a few days old.
It had its eyes opened but other than a twitch of the nose and seeing it breathe,it never moved a muscle.
He was bedded down right beside the trail,so it was easy to get pictures.
This is the first time either of us has seen a new born fawn.
What an amazing experience!
We took our pictures and walked away with smiles on our faces.
Thank-you Lord for giving us this special moment.
As we returned to the A Rocha Field Center for our lunch on  the deck,
we knew that this day was a special gift to us.

  7. I'm so glad he didn't startle and suddenly get up to wobble away from you. Those thin, long, new legs needed the rest! He is beautiful. Aren't those vivid spots just amazing?

  16. What a special day you had! I know how disappointing it can be to hear so many birds singing in the tops of the trees and not be able to see them, but you were well compensated when you were gifted with the sight of that precious baby fawn.

  27. That is so special, Ruth. Photographing the young deer and elk is one of my favorite things to do. I also love to see the curious expressions on their faces when they investigate the bright new world around them.
