Watery Wednesday: Deer at Crex Meadows

This weeks Watery Wednesday features a white tail deer and fawn that Michelle and I photographed at Crex Meadows back in June of 2007.
We spent a lot of time at Crex Meadows during the summer of 2007. At this time of the year it was about time for the swan cygnets to hatch so we were mostly looking at the pools, lakes, and ponds for new waterfowl chicks.
When we came to this pool we were hoping to find a mother with young but we were not expecting it to see a white tailed deer mother with her fawn. The stayed in the water long enough for mom to show the young fawn some affection and then they disappeared into the brush.

I gave up deer hunting for photography. This picture reminds me why.
