I always enjoy watching animals blend - or attempt to blend - into the landscape.

One of the less successful at this is the Peacock. Hidden in the woods.

Much harder to spot is this fawn I found while looking or my Alpacas. 

And then there's mom. She saw me stop near her baby and immediately went into stealth mode, moving slowly but steadily at an angle towards shelter, on a path that put her behind the fawn. She made no noise and did not look in our direction, trusting camouflage and quietness to hide her. In moments she was hidden and the fawn darted into the bushes.
