Deer fawn FINE ART PRINT
Deer are one of my favourite groups. I love all the variety of species from tiny African dik-dik to the giant elks of North America. I think for me its all about those legs, and big beautiful eyes. With this deer fawn fine art print I wanted it to show the whitetail deer cute side. A newborn fawn taking tentative steps in a meadow filled with wildflowers and butterflies.
Here are some whitetail deer Interesting Facts
