We were pleasantly surprised to see darling fawn and her mamma eating grass in our front yard this morning. Chris and I stood quietly, steaming coffee mugs in hand, and took in the peaceful scene. I internally sighed with contentment and settled in for quiet wildlife watching.
And then, brrrrrrrrm! off takes the fawn, at full speed, like a little puppy full of energy. The idyllic scene of mamma and baby was interrupted by the bounding, leaping streak of energy. She went running up and down and around the yard for about 5 minutes – roaring off here, jumping and bounding off there.
I’ve never seen such playful activity out of a deer. The video is only 7 seconds. Imagine the little baby zooming around for five minutes. It wasn’t idyllic but it was delightful and mood lifting.
