You can't see me......right.....?

The back yard.
My ever vigilant guard dachshund temporarily chased mom off.
The answer...hunker down and hide.

Good thing for this one that the dog's benign and just wants to play.
In the wild, with coyotes, this one would be part of the circle of life by now.

The thing that does amaze me about these things is that they can run like the wind when they are just minutes old.
The survival advantage is obvious.

Makes me wonder though....humans barely walk after many months of life.
That seems, to me, a huge survival disadvantage.

If it were my minds eye I can see two hour old newborns escaping the hospital nursery,
darting down the hall evading the L&D nurses who are, of course, trained in neonatal persuit and recapture.

Soon thereafter, off to look for mom.

Wonderful shots and story to go with them, Vernon! Those fawns are pretty little things aren't they!

I've got a couple of those guard dachshurnds too -- but one's too old and blind and the other's too lazy to chase anything most of the time!
