Fawn smooch, Newcastle, Texas

Not actually a kiss. It was the beginning of a twenty minute licking, washing, scrubbing session that the fawn seemed to thoroughly enjoy. Every minute or so the mother would drop her head "asking" for licks in return. The heaviest "scrubbing" was always reserved for the ears. For some reason these seemed to get special attention. Occasionally several does would wash the same fawn at the same time. I never tire of photographing fallow deer. There always seems to be something going on that would make interesting photos.
