A deer has given birth to a fawn in the first week of June 2007. The new born fawn is exploring his world in Central Texas.

A doe usually has one or two fawns at a time. Triplets are rare. The gestation period is anywhere up to ten months. In the first twenty minutes of a fawn's life, the fawn begins to take its first steps. Its mother licks it clean until it is almost free of scent, so predators will not find it. Its mother leaves often, and the fawn does not like to be left behind and bleats. Sometimes its mother gently pushes it down with her foot. Most fawns are born with their fur covered with white spots, though they lose their spots once they get older. The fawn stays hidden in the grass for one week until it is strong enough to walk with its mother. The fawn and its mother stay together for about one year. A male usually never sees his mother again, but females sometimes come back with their own fawns and form small herds.
