i didn't have my camera ready.
but yesterday these two fawns dashed across the road,
then turned back, curious.

We have been seeing more and more of them each day in Michigan.

What a wonderful post, and a wonderful poetic comment.

This is a photo that makes me smile!

Sorry about the bear. You'll just have to grin and bear it!

This is a marvelous picture, it could almost be a painting.
Thank you for all your kind comments on my postings.

They are indeed alert and curious. Someone has raised them well, but where are the parents?

Good luck with a bear photo next time.

Nice photo, pity about the bear. I have not seen any deer in Yorkshire these last few months. Perhaps I need to get out more.

Adorable! I love seeing them. The bear (and cougar) sightings seem to come more often during a dry summer, at least in places I've lived.

Rob said...

How lovely! I've inly rarely seen them.

Such a serene moment! We'd never see a scene like that where I am.

The closest I could come to this is a kangaroo who can show the same inquisitiveness. However, they like more open terrain ... they have their own unique method of escaping peril.

Great 'catch,' brattcat. You prowl with other beauties. But the bear: it didn't worry you?

glenda said...

Bears! Oh My!. What a great shot of these lovely creatures.

Lovely images, I like them better than a bear, and the colors are so intense. Very good catch.
