The doe either dropped this fawn in or near the backyard, because she was still licking the fawn when I first noticed her.  The little one was still awkward on its long legs, and hopped rather than walked its first few steps.  I think deer usually have twins, so a single fawn might be a sign of the harsh winter the doe survived still pregnant.
