~USA - Great Smoky Mountains National Park - White-tailed Deer fawns - UNESCO ~

...Two cute Deer fawns curiously looking out from behind a bush...a great new addition to my National Parks collection... Thanks a lot Arnold!!

Established in 1934, this National Park is comprised of ridge upon ridge of seemingly endless forest on the border between North Carolina and Tennessee. World renowned for the diversity of its plant and animal life, the beauty of its ancient mountains and its history of southern Appalachian mountain culture, this is America's most visited national park.

From backside card:
White-tailed Deer Fawns does often give birth to twins, sometimes triplets, in the spring. Fawns weigh 4 to 5 pounds at birth. Their reddish brown coats are spotted with white dots that help camouflage them on the forest floor while their mothers browse for food. They usually stay with their mother through the winter, but males may leave after being weaned.
