Pics: Can You Guess Why This Farmer Didn't Mow His Grass?

You never know what's hidden in long blades of grass.

Cyril Earl Saint Jean, a farmer in France, made a delightful discovery May 19 while cutting his grass.

Hidden amongst the long blades of greenery were two newborn deer, hunkered down and awaiting the return of their mother.

Luckily for the little ones, Saint Jean isn't only a farmer, but also a hunter. He was knowledgeable to the fact that fawns will often seek safety in the long stuff.

Saint Jean posted the following caption along with his Facebook post: Belle rencontre ce matin. Quand chasseur ..... ben tu laisse un coin d.herbe.

Roughly translated, it means: Nice meeting this morning. When a farmer... and a hunter..... you leave a corner of grass.

This farmer's knowledge saved two precious lives.
