Early that morning Collin took some books up to his tree stand hoping to grab a few quiet minutes to read. As he was reading he heard a noise that made him get down and investigate and what he found was amazing!
A Momma deer had just given birth to twins!
I love how the warm brown of his fur contrasts with the white spots!
When Collin came upon them Momma deer ran off and this little guy was left behind. Collin was able to get some pictures of the newborn and left him alone.
Do you see that his nose is white at the tip?
Sayre and I came down an hour later and found him all curled up just sleeping away. He was curious enough to look around and even get up to figure out what was going on!
We left him after about five minutes figuring that Momma deer and the other baby were around somewhere and would come back for him.
Look how his spots seem to be running a pattern all the way up his neck?!
Can you see that his legs are still wet?! To think that we had the priviledge to observe a newborn creature is just amazing!
This is just another reason why I love living out here! To be able to see God's creation and actually experience it like this opens your eyes even more to how sovereign, creative, loving, gentle, and kind our creator is.
I'm reminded of the refrain from the hymn
All Things Bright and Beautiful
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.
I have had this hymn playing through my mind all spring and on into this summer and I think it fits perfectly! I love to sing this hymn to the music composed by William H. Monk which I think the link should take you to.
I hope you enjoyed catching a glimpse into God's exciting creation with me!
