Deer in the Headlights

White tailed deer (fawn), Julian, California. Last time we saw the deer congregating in the fields outside of Julian. Well, it looks like they've been busy and Spring brought a crop of youngsters. This fawn and his mother were in the middle of the road; hence, the bit of dash in the photo. Mom proptly leaped off to the side of the road but junior here was pretty confused about what to do with the big metal and glass animal staring him down. Luckily, we saw them in time and were able to stop and snap a quick picture. He was still in the middle of the road when we drove around him. Hey, if cats can have 9 lives, why can't deer?

That’s too cute; hopefully the fawn will learn quickly not all cars are that nice.
