Let awake ones lie, too. Young fawns are left alone for hours, but the mother will be back. Check back tomorrow for more photos of this fawn and the return of its mother, all taken yesterday in Bent Tree over the course of about 10 hours.
Following are pictures of twin fawns born yesterday at Bent Tree. The pictures were taken over the course of several hours, from the time the fawns were a few minutes old, until they were clean, dry, fed, and walking. Nature is amazing. The sixth picture is my favorite.
