orphan

One of two white-tailed deer fawns missing their mother. These were very young and still wobbly when on their legs.

Looks to be in too fine condition to be an orphan. How do you determine that the mother is not in the neighbourhood? Fine image though. TG

It had been in the same yard crying all night and morning...this photo was taken in the afternoon after Fish Wildlife and Parks officials had been called out. A mother does not normally leave a fawn for more than 3 or 4 hours. Apparently a doe had been hit by a car close by.

Well then, you are correct and my nosy worries are taken care of. Guess we both feel better. TG
Poor little fellow.......don't know where in the US you live, but here in Philadelphia, beautiful as they are, deer are weeds that kill our forests and parks.

And, good shot.
