Whitetail Fawn Near My Property

By | August 23, 2020

I photographed a Whitetail Fawn Near My Cabin back on July 28, 2018. Today I’m posting a photo I took of a Whitetail Fawn near this same location. Today’s photo was taken on August 7, 2020. I have Fawns on my property every summer that I get to see grow into adult deer.

How I Got The Shot: Whitetail Fawn Near My Property

I was standing near the main gate that opens to my property. The Fawn and a Doe were feeding near the driveway. When the Doe saw me it fled into the nearby woods but the Fawn remained and continued feeding.

I was hand-holding my camera to photograph this Fawn.
