This is too cute.  We live in a mountainous area with LOTS of deer and this is common.  The baby deer will NOT move until mom comes back.  It is a defense mechanism.  The baby will hold completely still and the mother will try and distract any enemies away from the baby.  Also, the less the baby moves the less likely it will be seen. 

Very sweet.   Thank you for sharing!

If the mama deer doesn’t come back soon you might want to call a wildlife preserve to take the baby and bottle feed it. Its so tiny!!!

Cute!  Good for you for leaving it alone.  We just had a notice in my area go out about this same thing.  Often the does will go out for long lengths of time looking for food.  Don’t worry yet.

@Jess1483:  Yes, thank you leaving her be and waiting for the mother 🙂 I worked at a wildlife rehabilitation center for years and far too often people panic when they see fawns and think them abandoned then try to make pets out of them which usually ends in the fawn dying. The mother will most likely be back soon.  The only time you should move a fawn is if it has a visible injury, you see any sign of maggots on it, or the mother hasn’t come back in a long length of time (nearly a 24 hour period).  But, whn in doubt, call the nearest wildlife center to find a rehaber.
