Saturday afternoon Susie went out the basement door to hang some laundry and surprised a fawn which had been hanging out under our deck in the back yard. The fawn trotted off into the woods. He eventually came back and the kids got to look at him for a while. It seemed an unlikely place for a mother deer to stash her baby while she was out grazing, and I was afraid she wouldn't come back for it. But we checked back a few hours later and it was gone.
