    This morning on my way out of the door to go to work I noticed a fawn in the front yard. I run upstairs to grab my camera and was able to get a couple good shots of the little guy. He was pretty friendly, he let me get within 1 foot of him before running away (he was so young he could barely run, he was stumbling all over). After telling my Dad about it, he told me he saw the same one and it was walking up to him. The first couple pictures are a little blurry because it was pretty dark in the shade, but the last 2 I had a tripod set up. C&C always welcome.

    Usually, mother is not far off and probably foraging for food. She will put the fawn down somewhere she thinks is safe. The middle of the yard seems kind of out in the open. Maybe she's asking you to babysit!? Also, the fawn doesn't move because s/he thinks you can't see him/her.

    Yeah mothers will leave their babies in weird places. We found a baby underneath a bunch of old lumber at my mom's house in Austin. The baby was gone a few hours later.

    Does anyone have any specific dimensions they want for a desktop so I can optimize?
