I was using a weed wacker to clear out the woods on the edge of my one acre suburban lot in New Jersey for a Memorial Day family gathering. I came across what I thought was a rock, but suddenly it moved and two vey large eyes appeared and looked up at me. I realized it was a newborn fawn that its mother had left in what had appeared to be a safe and secluded spot.I ran to get my camera, and grabbed this image, which I titled "The Next Generation." The mother (or older sister) came a while later to take the fawn to safety.

I put out an almost empty jar of peanut butter for the birds in my back yard to enjoy. This young buck decided to take it for a snack.
