Amazingly enough I saw SEVEN deer today, spread over 3 encounters, and didn't manage to get a picture of any of them!!
1 - Walked off a side track in to a wooded area and big deer bounded across right in front of me, sadly there was a tree to my left and so I couldn't get a shot of that one.
2, 3 and 4 - Walking along a side path in the woods I saw one deer cross the path ahead of me and thought, damn I've just missed another one...... and then 2 more bounded a across as well!
5, 6 and 7 - whilst quietly observing dragonflies at very off-the-beaten-track pond, I kept hearing various rustles and twig cracks over the course of a couple of hours but at one point I was crouching down facing away from the pond photographing a dragonfly when I heard a lot of clopping and rustling behind me. I turned my head reeeaaaalllllyyyy sllllooowwwwlllyyyy to see 3 deer (looked like 2 adults and little un) on the far side of the pond, about 30ft away from me. I started to turn my body with my camera and one of them looked up, ears in my direction....... and then they shot off back in to the woods.
