A walk in the woods

Posted 6/8/2010 4:13am by Julie Hurst / Roy Brubaker.

Sunday, while I took the girls down the road for a quick swim in our neighbor's pool, Roy went for a walk in the woods to check his mushoom logs and ginseng plots.   Here's what he found under a protective layer of brush intended to keep the deer from browsing his precious crop.

We arrived back at the house at the same time so we grabbed the camera, tied the dogs in the yard, and all returned to get a glimpse.  A fawn's only real defense is it ability to blend in and lie still.  In spite of Roy getting within two feet of its hiding place and having dogs running around oblivious of its existance, and then having more people come whispering around it, it stayed put.  What a lovely creature.
