Roe Deer (Capreolus capreolus) (Explore)

This is a full frame grab shot of the Roe Deer doe that lives in the field next to us. NOTE I said grab shot!

She has twins and is looking after them well, we watch them every night from the sitting room widow but tonight she was close & I had my camera to hand so I crept out in my nighty & slippers and took some photos as you can see she knew I was there but did not run off, after this she just turned back and started to eat.

Once the babies are older they will disperse back in the forest, this happens every year.
