Whitetail Fawn - Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge - Oklahoma

I spotted this Whitetail Fawn by itself in a field back in September 2018. I was at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

When Fawns are 8 to 10 weeks old they become weaned.

I don't see too many Fawns by themselves at this Refuge and the Doe could have been somewhere nearby.

I read that males leave their mothers after a year and females leave after two.

How I Got The Shot - Whitetail Fawn

I had my Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera with the Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens on a beanbag, and I was shooting from the window of my pickup. I was shooting in aperture priority mode (AV) with a shutter speed of 1/320 of a second at f5.6 and the ISO at 1000. White Balance was set on auto. I was using single point, continuous auto focus with evaluative metering.
