Fawn in a field on Summer Solstice

Fawn left by mama for a few hours under the watchful eyes of Kirkcaldy neighbors.

So that's why they are covered in white spots!

Sure that's a fawn?, it looks like a baby deer to me.

Actually, their coloration is more suitable to a forest situation with spots of light hitting the ground through the trees. They can be virtually invisible to predators whose color vision is not as sharp as ours. Many predators are more tuned in to motion when it comes to visuals, depending more on sound and scent. And, BTW, fawns are almost devoid of scent and are very good at being quiet and holding still.

If evolution worked then the deer's fir would be green.

Gregg Thomas is either brilliantly hilarious or barely functioning. 

I think that is the beauty of it...

I'm convinced he's being very, very punny!

Also, how very strange this picture got resurrected almost exactly four years after I posted it..

Tone lost in text, I guess? I was totally joking around :P

I see um near every day on my property. We have two sets of twins scampering around currently. I do not like seeing them one bit when on my motosickle; they're unpredictable as hell.
