Fawn Twins Arrive

These white-tailed deer fawns appeared June 15 in the Colvin Run Habitat. A full three weeks later that the first fawn seen this spring, these two stayed close to mom and dad.
Like the fawn twins from last year, there is a noticeable size difference between these two.
In the third photo, one of the fawns is seeking to nurse. However, this deer is a male - as seen from the growing antlers. I assume this male is the father and not a brother born last year.
