Fawn in Hand

  Fawn in Hand.

  Month old Whitetail fawn.  One of my absolute favorite animals from the Blackfork watershed.  This little one was abandoned and raised on a bottle at an animal rehab.  The lady had eight or nine of them.  In the daytime she fed them in a little wire pen she moved around the yard.  At night they came into the house and disappeared into corners and behind plants until you thought the room was empty. 

 They were very tame.  In the hand this one felt more like a little bird than a mammal. 

  I held the fawn with one hand and fired the cable release with the other.

  Edition of 40.  Platinum contact print or silver gelatin print on 20X24 paper.  1,200.00
