Twin Fawns Near Ouachita National Forest

I photographed these two Whitetail Twin Fawns on my property. My property is next to the Ouachita National Forest here in Arkansas.

About 20 to 25 percent of the time, whitetail twins aren’t even fraternal twins!
In reality, they are only somewhat related.
One species for whom multiple paternity in a single litter has been verified is whitetail deer.

A Fawn Ran To Me

This Whitetail Fawn was doing Zoomies out in a field when it suddenly stopped and ran up to me. It got so close that I thought it was going to run into me. It started jumping around before heading back to a Doe that was feeding nearby. (Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge)

A Whitetail Fawn In Soybeans

I photographed a Whitetail Fawn in soybeans at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

The one thing I know about Deer at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge is that they like soybeans.

A Curious Whitetail Fawn

I photographed this curious Whitetail Fawn at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

Fawns begin to participate in social activities around the age of six months.

They are more playful and curious than adults, and they are less fearful.

How I Got The Photo:

I was driving the auto tour road when I spotted this Fawn running on the side of the road toward me. I stopped, and it ran past me. It ran a short distance and turned and ran back toward me. It stopped a few feet from my pickup and stared at me. After a minute or two, it walked into the brush.

I could photograph it from my pickup. My camera and lens were on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
