The circle of life
This little fawn, just minutes old, gets a bath from its mother while seeking a meal. Bob and Connie Borchardt and their dog Bailey were enjoying their morning coffee on their back porch when they noticed the doe in the neighbor’s yard last Saturday. They watched with excitement as the miracle of birth took place ... and then again! While deer are common visitors to the Borchardt neighborhood, it was a rare moment for them to witness the arrival of twins. As the fawns gained confidence on their legs, the family slowly moved off into the brush.
