You must have been quick to that that shot David !
A good action pic, you can almost hear them swishing through the long grass. Lovely creatures.

Beautiful piccy of beautiful creatures. It almost looks like they are enjoying the snow.

It's hard to believe Deer roam around Haigh. They look as if they are enjoying scampering through he snow. It's another good photo to cheer us up.

Beautiful photo David but I am going to show my ignorance here the one at the front appears to have horns but the other one doesn’t why.

Comment by: Mick on 17th January 2021 at 12:20

Jean the one in front always has horns, its so they can pip them to let people know they are coming

What a superb photo, well done David for capturing such a scene.
They're most likely a Buck and a Doe Jean, the Buck being in front with horns and thicker set head.

Lovely pic ! See deer quite regularly in the farmer's field behind where I live,and seen them over Hindley Hall golf course during lockdown.

Thanks all. I'd just put out a bit of bird seed and was getting ready to take photos of the birds when I heard what I thought was dogs playing. I was delighted when I looked round to see those two running towards me.
