They are so tiny!
Not much bigger than the headstones which surround them, this year's pair of twin fawns at Shiloh look healthy, and of course, super cute! I found them right away after we entered the cemetery gate. To my surprise, they were closer to the front instead of the back where I'm used to seeing them. I'll never forget a few years ago when I first found twin fawns in the cemetery - I was elated! That feeling came rushing back with the 2016 pair.
This time, I talked to them. They were a bit nervous, but not too skittish. One even started to walk towards me, but then changed her mind and went back to the other one. There was no sign of Mama Deer, but then that's normal for her...she tends to leave the fawns in the safety of the cemetery walls while she goes out. So it was just us, the fawns, and of course the Great Horned Owls, in the cemetery that night. The fawns didn't seem bothered by the owls screaming and flying right over them. In fact, they seemed to enjoy watching them fly by.
It will be a joy to watch this pair grow up. We're going back tonight to see if they're out again. And of course, look for the owls at the same time. Who ever thought time in a cemetery could be such fun? :)
I've made two new works of art featuring these sweet babies already. As always, I used resources from DailyTexture.Com to create my art. Check them out:
Each piece of art I create is an adventure. An adventure into me, my mood at the time, my thoughts and feelings... An adventure into nature... An adventure alongside wild birds and animals... An adventure into a variety of artistic processes. As a result, my entire life is one big adventure, and I love it!
I use Backblaze for online cloud storage -- which I highly recommend to have a safe backup of all your photos, textures, and finished art! --Jai
