Hello Nature Canada,
This photo is of a newborn fawn that my family happened upon in a forest near Hockley Valley, Ontario. It was tiny and did not walk yet, though we did witness it stumbling a bit, clearly trying! We took a few quick pictures and carried on our way. We knew the mother would be back soon. It was an awesome experience and a first for all of us!
