Being There

A Bit of Sun 146

It is a rare honour to be able to get this close to Roe Deer, I had unwittingly stumbled upon this pair while I was unsuccessfully stalking Savi’s Warblers and Bluethroats…

To get a bit closer I did crawl on hands and knees under the cover of last years reed and a conveniently placed hawthorn…the wind was blowing from the right and sometimes I was afraid that the buck caught my scent as he started making snorting sounds when there was a break in the wind…

As the wind fizzed through the reeds on a sunny evening in May…time stood still…

  2. Awesome! I’ve been that close to deer, unfortunately only when the corn was high and both deer and I were quite surprised by the encounter. πŸ˜€
