White-Tailed Deer

September is a good month for seeing mother deer and their young.  I was out at Alum Creek State Park this morning, and happened upon a doe and her two fawns walking along a path.  I stood silently and took photos as they went by me- mom was confident but kept an eye on me, the first fawn to follow her was a bit nervous, the second fawn probably felt cut off, and raced by me to gain the reassurance of being with the rest of the family.  A couple walking along the path stopped to watch them with me.  All was well and the family wandered across the field into the woods.  It was a great experience, seeing nature so handsome and up close.
