The story of the fawns with albinism


Regular readers will remember that a short while back I posted a photo I'd fallen in love with of two fawns with albinism. The photo had come in one of those forwarded e-mails that goes around the country and it made it's way to Kathryn. Kathryn sent it to me.
We had no way of knowing who took the photo, but suspected it was taken by some guy named Tim.
Well, you'll never believe this! Tim found us and his photo here on the blog. He was gracious enough to send two more photos. He says the fawns have visited his yard in Minnesota for more than two years now nearly every day. He and his wife say are honored to have such rare and beautiful creatures visit them. And, to give the photographer credit, his name is Tim Roeschlein.
Just a few days ago a local news channel did a story about the fawns and you can see it yourself at: http://kstp.com/article/stories/S348404.shtml?cat=1&v=1 .
I know you all will enjoy it - and I suspect many of the kids with albinism will get a kick out of this.
Thanks so much Tim for sharing your visitors with us!

That is so cool! I did not know who had those fawns in their yard, so now we know. The additional pictures are just as beautiful.
