Daylily In Bloom
One afternoon last week, Lee and I were working in his Studio, reviewing images on the computer. Taking a short break, I got up and looked out the window. There was movement in the flowerbed under the tree about 20 feet from the window. At first, I thought it was a dog, but quickly realized it was a young fawn!
Fawn Near the Porch
Approaching the Flowerbed
We frequently have deer on the property, and each year we usually see several mothers with one or more fawns. But this fawn was alone. It started to rain, and the fawn ran towards the woods in front of the house. After a brief shower, the sun came out, and Lee grabbed the camera and went outside.
At the Flowerbed
The fawn came back, and strolled into the flowerbed adjacent to the front porch. We could see it licking water off of the daylily leaves, but it was not nibbling. As the afternoon turned into evening, the fawn was still lying among the daylilies, and there was no sign of Mama. Around 11 pm that night, Lee went out with a flashlight, and the little fawn was neatly tucked in among the daylilies.
Against The Porch Rails
We went to bed hoping that Mama would find her fawn before morning. There was a brief thunderstorm overnight, and when morning came, Lee fed our cats and went outside to look in the flowerbed. The fawn was not there, and we were relieved! Later in the week we saw two mothers and two fawns in the clearing in the woods behind the house. Both fawns were nibbling grass and their mothers appeared to be keeping very close watch on them!
