I call her Mommie Deerest. She’s begun to bring her fawn around for us to see at dusk but never at a time when I had my camera at hand. This evening she did and I was ready. She takes a few hesitant steps and then turns to see if baby is following. The fawn is very young and the size of a small dog. Mommie Deerest is hyper-alert and when she saw me approach the window with my camera, she and Baby Snooks bounded into the field. It was a Rustic Chic meets “Aw, honey! Isn’t that cute?!” moment.
