The first is a three year old doe, which is in her prime. An animal such as this will ordinarily have at least one fawn each spring and, frequently have twins. On rare occasion they may have triplets.

The next photographs are of this year's fawns, and both were taken in November when they were about five months old. Fawns have spotted coats at birth, but they begin to fade in late August and September, until most have a completely brown or gray winter coat by late September or early October.

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
