[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This 5 month old white-tailed deer fawn was in full speed to join it's mother and sibling underneath an apple tree for a late afternoon feed. (See a follow up image taken exactly 2.1 seconds after this image - in the workshop.)

Female Northern White-tailed deer give birth to 13 spotted fawns, in mid to late spring.

Fawns will lose their spots during the first summer and will weigh from 46 to 78 pounds (21 to 36 kg) by the first winter.

Male fawns tend to be slightly larger and heavier than females. For the first 3-4 weeks, fawns mostly lie still and hide in vegetation while their mothers meander & feed.

The mother will visit her fawn periodically during the day for nursing. They are weaned after 810 weeks.

Males will leave their mothers after the first year while females will leave during or after the second year.
