[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had stopped to walk arround and wake up when I saw this lady walking a fawn. I asked if I could take a picture of it. It seems her mother had died giving birth and when the forrest ranger found it she was in bad shape. He took her to this kind lady who operates a rescue center in Arkansas for injured or abandoned animals. They had to feed her with a tube for a few days and as you can see she is doing fine. While I was taking her picture she came up and started liking my hand like a puppy, then stuck her nose under my chin and gave me more kisses. Neat experience. You have to admire people who do this for these helpless animals.

what a sweet darling little beaty.. poor thing loosing it's mother like that... than goodness there are people who do such incredible work caring for these creatures... they're true heroes..

beautiful capture of this wonderful little fawn.. than you for sharing it with us :-)


You find the neatest things! The nail polish is a bit too red though. I would have used a lighter shade!!! Seriously, you accidentally stumble on to more unique scenes than I can find on purpose! Maybe it is because when I travel I seldom stop until I reach my destination. The colors and contrast are excellent as is composition. Thanks for sharing this bit of nature.

What a lovely shot, the little fawns expression is priceless, I could never understand people hurting or killing animals just for sport. Well done Jim, very well captured!

Such a cute one Jim,
I feel sorry for him, but he's in good hands now, I s'pose.
Very nica capture and veru sweet moment.

take care, Stef
