'Fawn' pencil drawing on paper
(c) 27/3/12 by Shiloh Moore

I was looking through photos of animals and came across pictures of fawns (baby deer). I've always been attracted to deer and fawns for some reason. I was inspired to do this little scribble.

I tried to see if I could find information about fawns to see if there could be a more interesting reason for drawing one today. Nothing profound, but interestingly Wikipedia told me:
'In the first twenty minutes of a fawn's life, the fawn begins to take its first steps.'
'The fawn stays hidden in the grass for one week until it is strong enough to walk with its mother.'
