Mother and Fawn in Mars Hill

Hard to believe but I saw another Mother Deer & Fawn again tonight…the grass was so high, and didn’t see the fawn at first… I saw a mother & fawn yesterday morning, and a Mother & 2 fawns last night…all in different locations here in Mars Hill.   (Photo and description by Lovena West)
