Salty went along one evening last week and my favorite doe favored us by feeding quite near to us in the food plot.
She has a pair of what I call, " classically beautiful" fawns. Some fawns have ears that are too long to be in correct proportion for the most perfect look, or have blemishes from insect bites or skin problems such as mange, but these are perfect. They soon arrived to spend most of the evening feeding and interacting quite near to us.
Soon the spots will fade and by late September most fawns will have a brown or gray coat, but for now they still have that bright eyed, innocent look, and a beautiful coat that helps them escape detection by predators as the spots help camouflage them when they are in a woodland setting.
Also I'm a little late on posting this, but if you haven't heard already Jim Moore is having a "Name the Newt" contest on his web site for a chance to win a September Print of the Month. You can read about it here.
Jim says, "The contest is from August 1-15 only and I'd like to see a blogger win, but I'm not a judge for the name either."
Jim is a world-class photographer and instructor, specializing in stunning scenic photographs. Be sure and visit his website if you can.
I'm sorry I haven't been commenting too much lately or posting, but I am pursing a heavy program of video editing as I try to bring the film on Pennsylvania Elk to a conclusion.
