Fallow Deer, Dama dama, Castle Woods, Dinefwr Park, Llandeilo, South Wales
Fallow Deer, Dama dama.
This is a melanistic (dark) form in winter coat.
Dinefwr Park and Castle Woods has a herd of around 100 Fallow Deer.
We saw a family group of 4 deer at the bottom of the hill before this individual crashed through the undergrowth and stopped on the path just long enough to have its portrait taken.
Photo taken in Castle Woods, Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire, South Wales.
Camera: Nikon D300
