When a deer has a fawn, they have to go out alone to get food. They tell their fawns to curl up somewhere and lay absolutely still. I saw this fawn curled up in the forest and decided to take a picture of it.

My brother and I were working for the neighbors last year and we were throwing large rocks and I looked over and there was a baby deer just standing there watching, less than twenty feet away. It was weird because we were making a lot of noise throwing the rocks.

This quiet little angel is very different from the deer I encountered last summer while camping with my mom and sister. We had our dog with us (just a round little furball of an animal), who got loose just as a deer was wandering by our campsite. It wasn't pretty. I did learn three things:

1. Make sure you're dog is tied up properly

2. Deers can run really fast

3. Dogs can run really fast

Luckily, nobody got hurt (except my pride since I was the one who tied up our dog).

They are pretty cute, especially this one.  To give it credit, it didn't move a muscle when I approached it to take this picture.

So cute and sweet. We have a picture of a baby deer hanging on our wall downstairs. I think my dad took it years ago. They're precious, aren't they? Great job!

Aw! That is simply precious! Bambi! :) This is a great picture! And you're SO CLOSE. I've never been that close to a fawn. Good job!

I just walked up to it.  When their mothers tell them to stay still and hide, they don't move at all!  I could have reached out and petted it, but I didn't want to scare it too much.

Alon_Freevoice, that's the point!  The fawn thinks that if it stays still, people won't see it. ;)
