Two Kinds Of Deer

In my carnivorous and predatory world there are two kinds of deer. Them that are in range. Them that are out of range.

On the way to the store Sunday morning a doe was standing in the middle of a county road. As I slowly approached she wandered into the woods. Standing on the other side of the road in short grass was a fawn no larger than a medium size dog.

Neither deer were going anywhere. Does with fawns can do little when they sense a predator. Totally defenseless all they can do is run when threatened and this one would wait to see what would happen to the fawn. All the fawn can do is drop to the ground and hope the predator will not spot it.

Bambi's dad was nowhere to be seen.
