Occasional Traveler

A collection of my thoughts and photos on travel.

Friendly Fawn

November 24, 2009 |  We’re waiting for our taxi driver outside the Finca Lerida restaurant when I spot a fawn (or maybe just a small deer?) prancing through the coffee trees in our direction.  Without hesitation, I pick up my camera and click before pointing out the deer to my family.  I assumed that the fawn would see us and run away.  But instead, the fawn came right at us and actually stopped to sniff us!

We were delighted by this surprise and took turns petting the fawn, that is, until dad tried to hug the fawn, which of course, sent it running. Oh well,  at least I got some shots.

It was completely unexpected, but pretty cool!
