A Whitetail Buck Grooming A Whitetail Doe
It is not to often you see a Whitetail Buck grooming a doe.
New fawns should be appearing soon and I have been watching for them.
I saw a new fawn last week.. I have never seen one so small! Nice to see an emancipated buck
Very sweet! The doe looks so content. I’m on the look out for spotted fawns.
Neat photo, Steve. I didn’t know that fawns are born later in the south. I guess that makes sense? They need more time to develop up here before winter? We’ve had fawns out for nearly 3 weeks now. Can’t wait to see your fawn photos this year!
Tami, I am sure a few have been born but they stay hidden and I don’t start seeing them until June.
Beautiful sensitive capture
I just found your site, and I admire your work! I live on 52 acres, and we have many white tailed deer that have come to trust me. A few years ago, I was privileged to witness the birth of a fawn. As if that experience was not enough, the big 12 point buck came over to the Mom and baby…gently nudged it, as if you say, “She’s my girl!” and then he wandered off into the woods. I had always been told that the bucks have nothing to do with their babies…I believe they do! Deer are amazing creatures..last year I know for a fact that a doe adopted a spottie of a Mom that had been killed by a car…she had two of her own, but she nursed the little orphan just as if it were her own. I love photography, and I take many, many pictures, but mainly with my little “point and shoot” I am rarely without it on my walks… especially after NOT having it to take pictures of that birth! I’m glad I found your site!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving a great comment. It appears you have an awesome property for viewing and photographing wildlife.
I went out today and all I took was my little pocket camera. Sometimes I just don’t feel like carrying a bunch of stuff and I have gotten some great photos with just this small camera.
Thanks again and check back often. I am heading over to check out your site now.
