Crow’s Nest: Hidden Treasure

May 24, 2016

Yesterday we were pulling garlic mustard and passed by this fawn on both sides before seeing it. Being still and relying on camouflage is a fawn’s best defense while the mother is away foraging. We quickly snapped a photo and moved on.

I am reminded that this is one more reason we want our visitors to keep dogs on a leash and stay on mowed trails.
