I would like to congratulate Loot and Anna on the birth of their first grandchild. This is just a very joyous time for you both of you I know. I'm not sure what it is but I found it to be just so much more relaxing then having my own children. The stresses of parenthood are gone and you can just enjoy the moment. Loot there will be many times when just laying on the couch or bed with her laying on your chest is so soothing. Cherish this time as in an instant they will be grown. Welcome to the world baby Nina.

This new Mule Deer fawn was photographed in Waterton Lakes National Park in June of this year.

Hi Rick

This little fawn looks 'almost' as sweet and innocent as our little Nina. Thanks
so much Rick for this lovely thought and wonderful gesture. I am sure Anna will
appreciate it just as much as I do.

I love this image with the little Mule Deer fawn curled up while lying hidden from
danger. Its camouflage and the protection provided by the green grass conceals
its presence to other animals. The young antelope or deer fawn can lie dead still
like this for hours while waiting for its mom to return. Then it will jump up and put
those new legs to good use while exercising to gain strength and agility.

Well captured with good light and presented with balanced and natural saturation
of colours. TFS.

Hello Rick,
the capture is so pleasing and indeed it is a very well thought shot. It is also well thought and grocious of you to dedicate this lovely and cute animal to Loot and Anna.
Excellent presentation and noble thought.


Hallo Rick
We have returned from a lovely holiday in the Kruger after 3 weeks and I missed out on such a lot of great images in this time, and as you well know our 1st grandchild has also been born and Trek Nature had to wait for both Loot and me to get over our excitement. Thank you so much for this lovely dedication, your kind words and humble gesture is much appreciated.

Looking at this Mule Deer fawn it reminds me so much of our little Nina, which already has stolen my heart just by looking at her. She is very sweet and looks so fragile, and it is a pity that she had to be admitted to hospital with jaundice before we had time to spend with her, but tomorrow or the day after she will be home and we will cherish her once again.

I like the vivid "true to nature" colours very much. It is just how nature is supposed to be and your portrayal of the scene is just great. It is a beautiful fawn, with details of the fur, marks in the face and the big ears seen so beautifully. I also like how it is almost hidden in the green grass, and I am sure it is feeling protected where it is lying. The pose in which you have captured it has "innocent" written all over it. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful dedication. My best regards.

Bonjour Rick,
Très délicate attention avec cette superbe scène, pleine de douceur, de la vie sauvage.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Rick,
information is very accurate and beautiful photo adorned with a delicious,

"DEAR" friend Rick,
A marvelous gift to Loot and his beloved consort.
You are probably quite aware that as long as that fawn has those "spots" on its fur no predator can smell it; as long as it does not move even a bear in Waterton lake park will not sniff it out.
GREAT JESTURE!!![Loot will love this one.]
You have a kind heart!!! Love you LOTSA!!!
P.S. Congratulations... you will be rewarded soon for helping our most beloved Jackie.

Hi Rick.
A great capture that will make Loot and Anna happy. I like the cat's eyes view peeking through the grass with very nice focus and framing.
Nice shot and have a great week.

nice baby, greetings Ori
