Magical Moment 493, "Searching for Fauna"

Well, my husband has been keeping track of Fauna for me - the 3 week old fawn he discovered at the park where he works as a National Park Ranger. I've seen her twice now and I went back today to try and spot her a 3rd time. I had no such luck, but there are so many neat things around, I always have fun taking pictures of random things!

Eddie did see her last night with her mother...nursing! I told Eddie from now he has to carry the camera with him to work!



This deer stood in an open meadow with me in plain sight about 50 yards away. He didn't seem frightened at all, in fact, he went back to eating grass without glancing at me again. He hung out for a long time until...

Somebody (we won't say who), scared him off!

Perhaps we'll see Fauna again soon. Of course, if I do get close to her again, I won't bring Joy the dog...I mean somebody the dog.

A nice smile producing magical moment for me, with a laugh at the end. Thanks.

:)) SO sweet. You should teach him the ABC (Always Bring Camera) Rule for sure!

Steve Gravano said...

Yes I like the ABC rule! Be careful, sometimes mother deer are very protective of their young, it could be trouble for the pup.

Linda said...

I wondered if the deer could have been Fauna's mama. If so, Steve Gravano is right...she could be dangerous to Joy. Hope Eddie can get a photo of the fawn with that camera he's going to take to work from now on.

Texwosgor, thank you!

Anita, that's great to hear. Thank you!

Dawn, too bad we only have 1 camera to share between the 2 of us. But I'm gonna make him take it a few times a week. :)

Steve, thanks for the tip.

Linda, that deer was a male, he had small antlers growing. Probably won't take Joy the next time or two.

It is obvious your husband does not have a blog. :)
So, Joy ruined the moment? Irony.

HA! Our pup always LEAPS from the front door when he comes out each morning just hoping there will be a deer to run off. He's kinda crazy that way...
