Arne

Synchronised grazing

Two young Fallow Deer (Dama dama)**

 

Picture taken at Arne, where there was a group (not quite sure if there were enough to call it a herd) of these deer in a field adjoining the RSPB reserve

 

Edit Dec 2010

** misidentified, these are in fact Sika Deer.

Wonderful picture.
EJWilkins: I had to wait a while for them to be in the right place, but I think it was worth it
I see the thistle still features in antler posetongue
EJWilkins: Clever things, thistles, aren't they.

They look so relaxed Ellie. We had a Roe equivalent in our back garden a moment ago - naturally I had no camera on me!
EJWilkins: Wow! One in your garden, what a treat.
Very pretty picture of English countryside - well that down your way anyway.
EJWilkins: It's an area I don't know very well Sheila, but I'd like to go back before too long
grat capture, to wait till they were both down with their heads
EJWilkins: I did wait a while, the thistles kept getting in the way too!
Who is copying who?
EJWilkins: Umm, can't remember!
So wonderfully captured Ellie!
EJWilkins: It was a real treat to see them so relaxed Richard
I grew up in a province with lots of deer. There are none on the Island except in a park. Nice shot that reminds me of home.
EJWilkins: I'm not used to seeing deer so sort of comfortable with people nearby, it was a real treat

Good photo of two good looking animals
EJWilkins: They were indeed good looking, in very good condition
Lovely capture, Ellie. (:o)
EJWilkins: Thanks smile
They are a gorgeous colour in the sunshine smile
EJWilkins: They are indeed a gorgeous colour
The f11 works nicely to get both of them in focus ! Nice one Ellie.
EJWilkins: I was pleased that it worked out as I'd hoped.
they are not afraid of your telephoto!
EJWilkins: No, they weren't afraid at all
very nice warm shot here Ellie well captured
EJWilkins: They were so relaxed, it was a treat to see them
Very nicely captured, lots of detail.
EJWilkins: Thanks. It was quite easy to take, just a case of waiting until they moved forwards to the place I wanted them to be.
