A Fawn Tries to Beat The Heat

This fawn has been coming around the yard for a few days with its mother, but this morning I found it sleeping in the back yard in a shady spot. It let me take a few pictures and then left about a half hour later.

Or so I thought. At about 8:30 AM, I found it lounging near my front door. We’re in the middle of a heat wave and the temperature was already in the upper 80s by that time, and the spot the fawn picked was probably the coolest in the yard. Here are the photos, one taken very early in the morning when the light was still low, the other taken at 8:30 AM.
