Fallow deer

 Click image to enlarge!
Fallow deer mostly females, fawns and young bucks 
First time I have seen them this way this year. In the open like this, calm and relaxed. 
And, they did not notice me. 

Fallow deer doe and her fawn. The youngest one I have seen. The doe saw me but seemed to be unsure if I was a threat or not. 
This is in the corner of  a field behind the Mansion´s barns. The harvest is over so the deer is coming back. 

I wonder who lives here? Might be a fox but I have not seen any. 
This is the forest I walk through to get to the field above. And this is the easy part. 😅 Lots of fallen trees with sticky branches. But, a great exercise. And much more fun then walking or jogging. I like to sneak up on them.

  1. Monica - lovely shots of the fallow deer. I especially like the one with the doe peering at you intently through the trees! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  2. Hello,
    I always love seeing the deer, they are so pretty. The fawns are adorable with their spots. Neat shot of the tree, roots and moss. Wishing you a great day and a happy new week!

  3. I have always been a walker and never a jogger or a runner, and I am sure that I would miss so much that I find enjoyable if I were just speeding by.

  4. Aww I love the deer, so precious.

  5. That does look like a good little den for a wild animal....or maybe a gnome makes a home there for a family! heehee! Love seeing the wild deers and I'm glad you've been able to photograph them more this year! Enjoy your day!

  6. They are beautiful, you take such nice photos Monica!

  7. Beautiful images! Deer look so sweet!

  8. Definitely more fun! It’s beautiful in there and the deer make it even more perfect. Lucky to have a place like this to get your exercise. When you say “harvest is over” do you mean hunting season like we have here? (Private citizens with guns and licenses to shoot ?... I’m not a fan of that, but my husband says it is necessary or there would be too many for the land to support. Same as in your country?).

    1. Hi sally, with harvest I mean the crop is taken are of. Hunting season is just about to begin. It is bad as it is also rut season soon. Our people in charge kind of count the population and they decide how many can be shot. And buck or doe. Hunters are licensed people. Not civilians. For the most part they shot bucks so there are not many old ones today. :( Just young ones.

  9. love the deer and that hole beneath the tree brings to mind all sorts of creatures you need a home

  10. Love the shot of the deer keeping a close eye on you. And the light on the trees in the first photo is lovely.

  11. Splendid captures of the deer!

    So glad you were able to photograph them.

  12. I enjoyed seeing all of your photographs and mosaics, very nicely presented :)

    All the best Jan

  13. Very sneaky! Love your photos of the deer. They look quite content. I would just take a shot of the unknown den and leave, too--not brave enough to explore inside it!

    Many thanks for your link at 'My Corner of the World' this week !!

  14. Wonderful that you get to see so many deer. The last photo is so mysterious.
