A graceful baby
White-Tailed Fawn
Odocoileus virginianus
The newborn fawn can get to its feet within minutes, and very soon takes its first nourishment from the doe’s rich milk; however, it remains relatively feeble during the first week or so of its life.
As the fawn grows stronger it begins to follow the mother about during her feeding and soon learns to supplement its milk diet by nibbling on succulent vegetation. The doe, meantime, like other adult members of the deer herd, has been feeding steadily on new spring vegetation. She has entered the spring period in lean condition and with a shabby, tattered winter coat. Gradually the coarse grey winter coat is replaced by the fine reddish summer coat. Improved food supply results in both doe and fawn becoming sleek and sturdy by midsummer.

I tame slowly a new lens (Canon Tele-converter TC-DC58B 1,5X). I do not still master it very well, as you can notice it.
Thanks for looking.

Hi Luc,

Nice capture! I like the sense of speed you get when looking at this photo. Good colors. Too bad you didn't frame the whole bambi. I like the POV too. Well done & TFS!


Great action shot Luc! Your shot conveys movement well with action stopped nicely..It looks like difficult light to shoot in..I'm sure that with time you will master the new lens, Well done!

Hello Luc! All legs at that age, aren't they? Very good shot considering the hopping and jumping, lucky you!! The detail of the fur and the colours are great, and, oh, look at the gorgeous eye with the long lashes. Good job! Linda
