Day 08 – A moment
So many moments to choose from.
Last week while driving my route, a set of twin fawns I’ve been watching all summer ran across the road in front of me. I stopped the truck to see what had caused them to run into the road.
Their mother was standing in a yard on the upper side of the road. The twins had decided the acorns they were munching weren’t near as good as mother’s milk. I sat and watched as they ran to mom, picked a side and grabbed a teat.
Mom wasn’t crazy about standing out in the open while the twins fed, especially when I was sitting 15 feet away watching, but the little beggars were persistent. When it was obvious the twins weren’t going to let go, I drove away to keep the doe from becoming any more distressed.
It was just a nice interlude to a very busy day compliments of Mother Nature.
