Photographer James Chang captured some delightful video of a newborn fawn resting on the doorstep of his parents' California home.

At first, Chang was worried that the fawn was injured and called 9-1-1. He was told not to worry and to simply give the baby deer some space in case its mother was nearby.

"I freaked out, because I thought it was hurt and needed help," Chang told KSBW News.

But sure enough, after a short amount of time, Change noticed the fawn's mother eating grass across the street. Chang's own mother told the Today Show the adult deer eventually walked across the street and gently "nudged" her fawn, who then slowly rose to its feet and began its "newborn wobbly walk" back into the wilderness.
