I really fell in love with the deer design I recently drew So I decided to portray this moment between a mother pitcher deer and her little fawn.

When a pitcher deer becomes a mother, the honey bulbs on her head and chest bloom into flowers and act as a source of nutrients for her fawn. Pitcher deer require the extra source of nutrients they gain from insects, but a fawn's pitcher plant isn't capable of catching bugs until they get a little older, so the special flowers that bloom are substantial in getting nutrients.

Here the fawn if very young, and its mother is helping it keep balance through a little nudge of encouragement. ^^

What a lovely creature, I really liked them the first time you drew them.
