Well caught Ron, they are such little "dears".

If they didnt have the white bottom they would be even harder to spot.

One of the best shots I have seen of deer in this area.I remember a couple of Fallow Deer escaping from a paddock at Chester Zoo,what a wonderful sight it was as they leapt through a field of golden corn.

The information above should read canon D300 200mm lens ,sorry about that. I had not time to put on a longer lens,as it was I backed over my mates foot to get in position. His yelling startled the beasts,making it more difficult.

Well done Ron ,they are very timid and you can never get a shot theres always a branch or a tree in the way.Its a case of hide and seek with them .

Nice shot Ron, well caught.

I've come to the conclusion that the best way to encourage folks such as D**** H****, is to acknowledge his comments,which, I hope are meant to get a rise out of us "animal lovers"! therefore I reserve comment!

Afterthought--I was going to say that I only saw two; then I saw the white rear end of the third!

Didnt know we had Deer in dear old Wigan. lovely picture,

The deer are in the heather.
The birds are in the sky's .
The mouse is in the hedgerow.
Each captured by camera eye.
What joy it gives to others .
Not fortunate to see, the wonder
of Gods creation,first hand alas to be.
