I love you, mama!

I sat in my jeep with tears in my eyes as I watched this tender moment unfold between mother and child. I spotted this mule deer mother nursing her fawn along a fairly busy gravel road near our cabin in western Colorado. After nursing, the mother laid down and for about twenty minutes I was able to watch and capture these two as they interacted. Time truly stood still as this is a fairly busy road, and for the entire time I watched, there were no other cars or vehicles that passed by to interrupt their time with me.
