Twin Fawns

“The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment, it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone.”
– Orison Swett Marden

Twin Fawns

We have two sets of twin fawns in our neighborhood.  I see this pair with their mama every day.  They usually just stare at me as I approach, then as I just sit there in my vehicle, the fawns will go nuts and run around and play.  Eventually they dart into the woods, as mama watches from the side of the road.  I have only seen the other set of twins once.  They were in our yard and they are a little smaller than this set.  I know there are two sets, because I saw all of them in one afternoon.  I love seeing them play every day!

I’ll try to get a better photo of them.  It would be fun to paint.  🙂
