Some people over in Bend, Oregon found this fawn on their front steps a few weeks ago and
took this photo.......the white spots on the steps are apple blossom petals.

Isn't this an amazing photograph??? A great job of camouflage!

The fawn stayed there all morning and the mama came to get it after 4-5 hours.

there was a camouflauge pattern tried by the nazis in russian during ww2 that was a russet brown and covered with mottled spots to actually simulate a deer's own natural pattern. and is quiet a successful reproduction. only there where two fundamental problems. first, a number of the wearers were shot by troops from both sides eager to have a meal of roast venison.
second, in most of the conflict zones in russia ame either fled or had never before existed. so the russians werent fooled after the first time they had a chance to figure the ruse out.

but, yeah it is a very good bit of camouflauge that little fawn has going on there.

Another Bambi......

We found this little guy while squirrel hunting. He never moved a muscle. It's a Mule deer fawn also from eastern Oregon.

We happened upon the doe and this fawn driving from one squirrel hunting spot to another. They ran from the truck and the fawn ran smack dab into a log and went down 50 ft. from the road. I got out, snapped a few pics and left it to reunite with it's mother later on.

Tips? Just spend a lot of time in the woods. Oh, and have a camera handy! ;)
