28 Jul 12. Something fun for today. While preparing meals for the reptiles, Maggie, ever vigilant dog that she is, went to the sun room and began barking her fool head off. I decided I'd better have a look to see what all the commotion was about and it turned out to be a set of Black Tail fawns. They looked to be about a month old and still had a few of their spots. I shut Maggie out so she would stop barking, grabbed the camera, and quietly went through the bedroom out onto the deck to attempt a few portrait shots. Didn't get any portraits, but several full body shots of which a couple proved interesting. It being a very dark morning, the fawns constantly in movement, and me not quite as steady as I would have liked, the images didn't turn out as sharp as I wanted, but still good enough to share one of them. Here is the male and he is showing a rather bloated belly; looks like he swallowed a beach ball. I'm not sure if this is a normal thing or if there is something wrong with him, but either way, here he is. Bet he makes you smile.
