I came across this mother and her calf along the shore of a lake.  The calf, no bigger than the mom’s head must have been born that night as it was still unstable on it’s feet and had a very hard time walking through the tall grass.  The mother would try to call and lead the calf away but the calf was still not strong enough to follow.  I left after a short time and returned to the same spot later that afternoon but they had moved off into the forest.
