A Very Young Fawn

I spotted this doe with a very small fawn right next to her in the verge next to the canal. The doe was licking the fawn religiously, and for quite a while.

The near-cliff behind them, and the water in front, suggest this fawn might have been born here; I do not think the fawn could have walked in or out. The fawn was not yet completely competent at finding a nursing location on the doe, making me think the fawn might have been born within the last few hours.
