When we think of Deer locally we think about Red and Roe Deer. In the right places they can be found. Neither is easy to get close to for photography but that's the challenge and I welcome that.
However, there's another deer to seek out - the Fallow Deer. There's a population close by. As with the Red Deer, October is an important month for rutting. You can often hear them before seeing them. In other areas, notably in England, selective breeding has promoted the pale form of Fallow Deer which is most attractive but in unmananged populations a darker form will predominate.
It was not possible or advisable to approach during the rut so I waited close to the woodland edge and was rewarded by a sighting of this youngster.
