I was sitting calmly taking some shots of the babies playing around the den. Mom was there too, but she seemed to get bored and disappeared off into the distance. Not 10 minutes later, I caught her returning out of the corner of my eye. That's all I know. What I don't know is who killed the fawn, who took of its head, and where it came from. It sure wasn't very far away for Mom to lug it back to the den so quickly.

Wow,

That's an interesting capture, I wonder what happened to the fawn - any theories out there?

Thanks Kev. Here she is dropping it into the den, and then one of the kits saying thanks for dinner.

Very nice set Ian.

The look on Mom's face on in the last shot is priceless.

That is so odd, but lucky you Ian for being there to photograph it.

Is it likely that Mom ate the head herself and brought home the rest? Lots of energy in that fatty brain.

Thanks Sandy. And here I was worried about her being able to keep up !

I guess anything is possible, I know osprey do that with fish, eating the head first. Kind of a weird discussion ;p

Superb shots, Wallace. Poor little fawn - but such is nature I suppose.

Thanks much Henrik. She is a good provider but it takes its toll on her.
