Deer Enjoy Afternoon Rest

I'd been working on my porch and went inside to make lunch.  When I returned, I noticed my favorite doe had decided to rest just outside my fence. 

Shortly after, her fawn came out of the woods to join her.  The fawn's twin hasn't been around for the last couple weeks, and I fear for its safety.

It wasn't long before the fawn found its own resting spot just behind her mom.

While the doe napped, the fawn quietly explored its resting space...

sampling a hemlock bough...

licking its chops...

doing a little grooming...

and just posing pretty for a picture.
