Wait for Me Mama

These are the first shots of Blue Eyes one of the three wild albino whitetail deer that spend a great part of their lives on our land. I am sure this is the first walk for the fawn because we knew Blue Eyes had a fawn about one hundred yards behind our house in a very brushy and dense forest area because we saw her entering the same spot for several days. I could see her nursing the fawn but it was impossible to get close to them with out scaring them. I decided to keep a close watch on the area and wait for her to come out of all that cover and then I would be able to get the first pictures of the fawn. Yesterday morning I was out walking on our logging trail and spotted her and the fawn about 50 yards in front of me. Thank goodness for a 100-400 zoom lens because I was able to get these shots without scaring them. The fawn is about six days old at my best guess. The two other albinos Suzy and Kicker have fawns but we have not seen theirs yet. There is a rumor one of the albinos has a white fawn.
