Fawning About

I adore watching the animals, and when I get to see baby animals it’s all the better.

They have this curious sense of newness and wonder that they wear on their faces.

Mom dotes on them and protects them from harm… and the baby listens and hastens at her insistence.

All the while the baby is tugged by this new world it finds itself in, with all the wonders to discover, and adventures to be had.

At this stage of their lives, with all their innocence, they have no fear of danger. If only mom could always protect them. They must be quickly schooled on the harsh reality of their existence.

They say that some of the best photos are taken from your subject’s perspective.  So if you are taking photos of a child or pets… to do it from their low vantage point.  It brings more story telling to the photograph, seeing the world from their eyes.

One of my recent favorite subjects are these baby deer I keep seeing.  There must be 4 families, with one mom and one baby each.  Sometimes I see them all at once… sometimes only one at a time.

However I see them, it’s always a treat, and something I never tire of.  The little fawns are each different.  Some more playful, some more timid… some more scrawny, some more filled out.

Mom is ever watchful and protective of their new little ones, and quick to sense danger.  It has been fun to watch their behavior and individual traits.
