Muntjac Deer (Muntiacus reevesi)

Muntjac Deer (Muntiacus reevesi), 3 May 2013. This was a surprise! I spotted it just as I turned a corner onto the bridleway at the top of St Nicholas Park, Stevenage. It stayed completely still as I got my camera out and took this photo from about 20 paces away. A second shot came out more blurry, then the deer moved into the bushes and I didn't see it again. I did hope this photo would come out slightly better, but it's still not bad, and is certainly the best photo of a deer I've ever taken!


I have blogged about it here.
