Good night, sweet prince.
|More Info, from comment by Alison:
The pictures weren't staged. The accompanying
German text explains how the fawn's mother was killed shortly before
it's birth and the fawn was then raised in a rural town with help from
townspeople (this part is not so clearly explained). The wild rabbit
showed up one day. At first the two just grazed in the same area and
after a while got closer until they became "friends". They
grazed together and kept each other company the whole day, the rabbit
built a nest next to the deer instead of burrowing and other cute stuff
like that. The author (who is also the photographer) mentions that the
two could have formed this friendship to be able to better protect
themselves from predators by warning each other and also the deer helped
the rabbit have easier access to food in the winter.
