Spring is birthing season for a variety of local wildlife, including deer. While these little ones are adorable, their precarious circumstance is an important reminder for those driving around the Lab to be aware and use caution. Also, do not attempt to get close to or feed deer or other wild animals. This photo was taken at the Lab by John Chernowski of the Facilities Division.
