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.

Exactly. That way the entire field matches the fawn almost perfectly. Just think of how long it took evolution to pull THAT one off. ;)

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.

Hmmm. Joke crash. Joke reboot required.

Exactly. That field evolved to perfectly match the fawn. Just think of how long it took evolution to pull THAT one off. ;)

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
