June is still present in our yard.
She has melted a bit but has more to go. Even the continual rain over the weekend didn't take care of her.
My other baby brother and she who sees robins first and I watched a doe laying down in the woods. She gave birth but it was too early for the fawn to be born alive...most Does give birth in our area about June 1st give or take a few days either way.
The Doe was way in the woods and we did not leave the road. I used the zoom lens on my camera to take a photo. Later on my other baby brother checked the area and yes the fawn was stillborn and way too little to survive...weighing about a pound or two. So sad. You never know what causes premature labor...could have been some nutritional need that had not been met...it was a long winter for deer too and as of yet there is no green grass to eat. This is not the first stillborn fawn that has been on our property...a year ago there was a fawn that did not survive near one of our walking trails.
