The fawn

White tailed deer, Rondeau Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada, July 26, 2019.

This fawn has been staying in a corner our yard. There is no adult in sight but it seems to be doing well. It is cautious of us but stays close by when we come out. It had just hopped the fence into the neighbour's yard.

Odocoileus viriginianus

White-tailed deer have large ears and bucks (reproductive males) have large antlers that they grow every year starting late spring.
