Mama deer finding time for a cool dip in the stream on a hot summer afternoon

Mama deer found a moment to enjoy a cool dip in the stream on a hot summer afternoon. It was startling and beautiful as we both spotted at each other at the same time. Instead of running off, she quietly gazed at me and allowed me to snap this photo of her.
