19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Whitetail fawn investigating the world

There were two fawns and a doe that took their time walking through my backyard. They stayed far enough apart that I could only get one in a photo at a time, but I loved this photo. The fawn just felt like it was pulling a majestic pose, almost mimicking a 12 point buck. A child copying a parent, if you will.
