Are you looking at me?

Young Fallow Deer (Dama dama)**

Taken at Arne, where there were quite a few of these deer in a field adjoining the RSPB reserve.

 

(And that's a thistle just behind the deer, pretending to be a pair of antlers!)

 

Edit Dec 2010

** misidentified, this is a Sika Deer.

Great photo it looks well fed.Are the black dots just above its antlers insects?
Lovely composition, Ellie and a great capture. Don`t you just love it when you come across these? (:o)
Lovely shote Ellie, I love those thistles/pretend antlers.

A lovely inquisitive shot Ellie. Arne is great for all sorts of deer
what a deer!!
Love how the thistle mimics his antlers, Ellie; that was a good catch. Beautiful animal, beautifully captured.
Very very good. I love the frame you have chosen
Perfect position to catch the deer in, he certainly is not camera shy smile
