Twin Fawns

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Vito Marrone

We were slowly cruising along when we spotted this whitetail deer no more than 20 or 30 feet off the park road. She had just given birth to twin fawns. She touched noses with her first born as her second fawn gathered strength lying at her front legs. We had just missed the second fawns birth. It was born only minutes before we arrived. Both babies were no more than fifteen minutes old.

Location: Hellroaring Creek, Yellowstone National Park, WY
