Little white-tailed deer fawn

Last week I went out to a friend’s shed to get a tractor and stumbled upon this white-tailed deer fawn (Artiodactyla: Cervidae: Odocoileus virginianus):

I imagine this little deer must have wandered into the shed to hide, and perhaps enjoyed the cool shade on what was a hot sunny day. After standing startled at my presence for a moment, it dashed outside where it paused long enough to capture this photo:
