A few weeks a go told you a story of a small herd of deer I found in the meadow of the nature park. There were two adult females and three little fawns. It was a nice thing to see that they had formed their own little family. At the time, I thought the three fawns belonged to one of the females, but then I saw something that led me to believe I was mistaken.
Just this last week I told you another story of my adventure through this same nature park. This time I was surprised by three more deer, a doe (an adult female) and two fawns. I believed these to be three of those same five deer I saw those few weeks ago. One of the fawns was not with them, so I thought maybe I was mistaken before and one of those three fawns must have belonged to the other doe.
Maybe this was why there was only two fawns with the mother the last time. Maybe this little fawn had somehow gotten separated from its family. I couldn't bear to think of this poor little baby all alone in the woods. As I watched this little deer, it looked back at me a few times. It seemed calm and not afraid. It even turned and began eating the leaves off of a bush in front of it. I finally had to go on my way, but with the sad thoughts still in my head I paused and said, "Goodbye Bambi." I then moved on through the forest.
