5-day-old white-tailed deer fawn with mama

Our mama deer had one of her two 5-day old fawns bedded down in our yard, and we got to watch her feeding the little one and keeping it clean.

A mother fox wandered by them and, fortunately, they were like two ships passing in the night.  Mama deer can easily defend herself against a fox, but a fawn at this age is helpless.  We don’t want the foxes to know where the fawns are hidden.
