All of these deer were seen at the campground at the Meadows in SNP. The first one is very small even for a newborn.
Take notice that the fawn's head does not even touch the doe's underbelly.
Mom was very attentive and paid no attention to us in the car snapping pictures
A short distance away we came across a bigger fawn
Mom was not far away. She has tags in her ears. a lot of the deer are tagged and some even have radio collars.
We would have never seen this tiny fawn if someone hadn't told us where he was. I walked up from a distance to take these pictures and he never took his eyes off me. But he did not move.
Bucks were not moving around much but we did see this one along the road
A young spike was eating alongside one of the overlooks.
As we got closer we saw what we think were warbles on his face.
They are caused by the warble fly (The fly lays eggs on the forelegs of large animals. They are ingested when the animal licks them off. The larvae travel to the skin surface and cause swellings called "warbles" They remain under the skin, and can be destroyed by pressure,)
One night leaving the restaurant after dark the headlights caught this deer
SNP is the place to go to see wildlife!
