New-born deer photos

Check out the photos of the fawn that was in my sister-in-law’s backyard – in suburban Cincinnati!

She found it this past Thursday while babysitting her niece and nephew. Actually the two youngsters discovered it while playing in the backyard. She thinks momma deer hopped the fence sometime Wednesday or Thursday and gave birth, but then couldn’t get the fawn out of the yard. My sister-in-law (dutifully) opened the gate for momma that day and both momma and baby were gone the next morning.

aww now that is the cutest thing I've ever seen!!! I live in the cincy area myself, and I can attest to the fact that the city is notorious for ghetto deer. ;-)

Rachel - I'm originally from Cincy myself. I just checked out your hiking blog. Gald to see that you've hiked at Shawnee Lookout - one of the best places to hike in the immediate Cincy area.

Have you made it down to Red River Gorge yet?
