The whitetail fawns in Huron County are getting much bigger as the summer progresses. These two did their "freeze frame" routine when I stopped my Chevy Volt last night. With the window rolled down and the car turned off, I whipped out my camera and watched these two. They were tall enough to stare me down over the grain field, yet they have not lost their baby spots yet.
Pretty soon Mama came on the scene and sent some kind of signal to the kids. Just after this second photo was taken, they all bounded away, across the fields.
These photos were taken on Stoddard Road, just off of M-25, near Lighthouse Park, but you can see deer almost anywhere in Huron County this summer.
