Baby Deer After Losing Spots

In many parts of Northern Ohio it is a common sight to see deer in your yard. Well, where I live in the West Park Area of Cleveland, we have several families that hang around in many of our yards. I've been watching the Mama and her two babies for several months now. I've taken zillions of photos. Within the last 3 weeks or so, the two fawns lost their spots and grew a little bigger. Mom and babies will actually pose for me as long as I move very slowly and don't startle them. It just amazes me that in the middle of the city that I can walk out side and they are hanging around 15 to 20 feet from my back door. This baby somehow scratched it face on something. You can see the fur missing in a few spots in the middle of its face between its nose and its eyes.
