But mom, I don’t want a bath!

White-tailed Deer, Back Creek Marsh, Kennebunk Maine

If you read yesterdays Day Poem, you know that Carol and Kelia called me from the beach to say there were 3 deer in the marsh behind the dunes. Just on the chance they would be there, I drove down. They were. A doe and two fawns still in their spotted coats. They were out in the marsh beside the main bed of the stream, at high tide, when most of the marsh is flooded. It looked like the doe wanted to cross, but could no persuade the fawns that it was safe, so they retreated toward firmer ground. The distance was at least 150 yards, so not ideal even at 600mm, but I am pleased with the cropped shots.
