Woke up one morning and what did I see ?

attachment.php


I's been trying to get a good shot of deer for the last 20 years.Everytime I see some around my cabin they have disapeared or hidden before I could get the camera to take a shot. I even followed one for half a mile through the trees oncem an every time it stopped I would stop and raise the camera to take a shot but by the time I had looked into the viewfinder the sneaky git had moved on. I got so paranoid that I thought them pesky deer were playing around with me head.
So imagine my suprisewhen I looked out of the kitchen window and saw the above.
See the DropBox link for more fab pics.
Several days later I had the chance to take some more pics. The cheeky deer stayed munching for a good three or four minutes and I managed to get a few very decent shots.
Enjoy.

First three pics are a view from me kitchen door.
Pics 4 to 10 are of the first occasion and are taken through the window.
The rest are taken from a distance of about 15 feet through the branches of me oak sapling.

Yup we had torrential rain yesterday. Raindrops as big as dinner plates.

Pictures of park deer ? Where is the thrill in that.

Roe deer seen a couple of miles from home. Really well camouflaged with that background.

Oh I loved the Avengers, oops showing my age now, can any of you remember when they gave the news on the BBC Home Service if there had been a crime they gave out this number to call if you had any information Whitehall1212 for Scotland Yard?
