"Inquisitive fawn"

Photo of a very curious fawn.

Deer are graceful creatures, always full of life and quite curious about the things going on around them. Today's picture features a rather inquisitive fawn, and here is photographer Timothy Briggs to tell us about it:
    "I haven't had a whole lot of time for pictures lately, but I did
    manage to come across this fawn and it's mother on my way
    home from work one day last week. I only got one shot before
    they both vanished into the thick brush, but I think it turned out
    well. The doe had already moved partially behind the brush, but
    the fawn stopped a moment to look back.

    I especially liked the fawn's body positioning and expression as it
    turned to look back. When I look at this shot, it makes me stop
    for a moment to look back on recent events and be thankful for
    the time I get to spend outdoors. Deer are among my favorite
    subjects to photograph in nature."

    I really like this picture a lot. I guess it proves that youngsters of all species are an inquisitive lot!
