Sharing moments in time…

Bambi Moment


We had a few minutes with this Mom and Fawn in the forest in Bandhavgarh National Park in India.  Mom was doing a VERY thorough job of grooming her young one – pretty much licking her entire body.  This was my favorite photo from that enDEERing interaction (sorry for the bad pun).  Pretty cute….and look at the blue eyes!

"oh Mom!"

“oh Mom!”
