Spotted My First Spotted Fawn
On August 27, 2014 on my way home from work I stopped at Fort Snelling State Park in St. Paul, MN to see if I could find the deer along with their fawns I've been hearing about.
Just after the park office I saw these does laying in the brush.
Then going by this field I was going to take a photo of these wild turkeys and suddenly a doe appeared in my lens.
Then after doing some scouting around, I came across a family of around 6 deer. One doe appeared to have an injured leg and let me get within 10 feet while she laid down chewing her cud.
Finally I spotted what I was looking for, a spotted fawn. After nearly tripping over the injured doe, I spent about 30 minutes following this fawn, getting closer to get better angles for great images. The fawn and it's family seemed to trust me as they all laid down in spite of my presence.
Hi Alan, WOW! So amazing!
How fun! A great ending to your day. I can't believe you were able to get so close!
