Thanks, Michelle and Leslie. I was in Jefferson Barracks -- an old and huge military cemetery which borders on the Mississippi River. It is full of deer who are indeed pretty safe and pretty comfortable with people. The fawn's mother felt safe enough I guess to leave her alone. The little fawn was eating and then decided to rest a bit.

Best, Mary Lou

Hi Mary.
What a great capture you made of this fine scene.
I like the story told here, and I like the photographical qualities as well - everything comes well together: Light, placement of the sharpness, colour, and a very fine composition.
Regards Peder
