elusive fallow deer
with twin fawns, who no longer show fear
Sunday Night Family Dinner …
… right here.
This doe and her fawns have been coming through the forest behind us since the beginning of the year. I remember the first time I spotted them. The fawns were much smaller, still had white spots on their backs and their tiny legs appeared wobbly in moments.
Most weeks, I see them two or three times. At first the fawns were shy and immediately scampered off into the woods whenever we had an encounter near the fence. Now they are much bigger, and for once didn’t run off into the woods.
The deer and I just stood and paused while checking each other out.
I hope you had a Zen Sunday!
