Fawns: devils of the meadow

I look through my Web stats periodically to see who is linking to my site.  Mostly it's the same handful of sites providing links to my Random Notes page or to one of the articles that I've posted here.  But way down at the bottom of the links list I run across links to pictures that I've posted on the site.  I like to follow those links to see how the pictures are being used.  By far the funniest I've run across is Fawns: devils of the meadow:

While everyone knows that the adults of the family are nasty, vicious, violent brutes, many people are under the mistaken impression that this only begins to manifest as the animal reaches adulthood. This is not, in fact, so. Deer are quite simply born bad. Their lust for blood reaches a fever pitch within hours of birth, and what they lack in strength and size, they more than make up for with sheer animal cunning.

This "photo documentary" is simply hilarious.  The second picture on that page comes from this entry on my site.
