Fawns are often seen soon after birth, but then they are seldom seen for a few weeks as the doe hides them in the woods or tall grass and leaves them while she feeds elsewhere. Sometimes fawns will come into the meadows after them, but this is not commonplace until they are a few weeks old and it is sometime in July or August before the fawns are almost always with the does. I have seen fawns as early as mid-May, but it was the 24th this year before I saw the first one. I was driving a back road and saw a doe and fawn cross the road. I got off a few quick frames with the still camera and then set the video camera up and got much better material with it.

While opportunities such as the rattlesnake encounter are always welcome, most of my spring and summer photography is of whitetail deer, wild turkeys and Pennsylvania elk.and I look forward to filming and photographing them as summer nears.
