Bambi in the bushes

While walking one of the trails in Rondeau Provincial Park, I flushed a white tailed deer.
I continued walking and saw something on the path ahead of me.
A fawn was on the path moving in the same direction the adult deer had gone.
We looked at each other for about 5 seconds which was about 1 second more than the fawn felt comfortable with.
It scurried off into the brush at the side of the trail and I was able to get a few photos.
I don't know if the blue eye is a trick of the light as deer have brown eyes.

Odocoileus virginianus
