Fearless Fawn and Footprint

I found a delightful footstep of a small deer today while on a wilderness walk. The track sat there, indented in the mud right next to a maple leaf and a small and sour wild plum...(I know, I checked) :0)

Later, on the way out of the forest, I ran into what looked like a statue in the grass! But not at all, she was a sweet fawn gazing at me with a relaxed brow.

I said to her, "Hello precious darling!" and she began nibbling at the green stuff below. What a sweetheart. She ended up bounding away like a gazelle prancing around on a lazy afternoon, and I missed her almost as soon as she was gone from sight.
