Today, Katya went wandering around our property, checking on the flowers, as she loves to do. She came back to Charity and showed Charity she should come with her. That's nothing new--Katya does that regularly to show Charity flowers that are blooming. Charity trotted cheerfully along.
In addition to the expected flowers--look what else was in the grass, mere yards from our house!
You don't see anything?! Look very, very closely!
Oh! Now you see something?! And you think you know what it is?!
You were right! A little fawn! He/She stayed there sooo still and quiet and never once jumped up the whole entire time Charity and Katya were watching it--and even when the rest of us came to observe it first hand some time later, the good little fawn stayed still!
Now, if it weren't for the fact that this adorable little fawn is going to grow up and be a threat to my plants, flowers and garden, I'd be REALLY thrilled! But honestly . . . I wish we could enjoy the cuteness of a fawn like this without feeling just a wee bit hysterical about what damages it will do to our property!
Still, I'm very glad Katya got to experience this close up and personal . . . standing just mere inches from this fawn, she studied it intently. She also liked looking down at it from the safety of her Daddy's shoulders!
