If you are frequent reader of SeaWayBLOG you should know that this is a place enitrely dedicated to water in all of his shapes, therefore I'm glad that in the picture above there's snow so I have the pretext to write here about this story that simply too amazing to skip it.

It's the story of a friendship between an orphan fawn and a rabbit, a sort of real-life version of Walt Disney's Bambi and Thumper (the rabbit that in French is called "Panpan", in Spanish "Tambor" and in Italian "Tippete").

First of all my sincere compliments to Tanja Askani who is a great nature photographer (and nature lover) and is the author of all these pictures. Take a visit to her website to see more pictures and have more details on this fantastic story about the fawn Finchen and his little rabbit friend.

If you are still not convinced that sometimes reality could be so similar to fantasy compare the following pictures By Tanja Askani with the picture from the Disney's movie based on the 1923 book, “Bambi, A Life in the Woods” by Felix Salten:

    Hello, little precision; it is not an orphan faw but a female roe deer. Great pictures anyway :-)
