Well caught Ron, they are such little "dears".


Comment by Mick on 6th February 2012 at 07:24
If they didnt have the white bottom they would be even harder to spot.


Comment by Harry C. on 6th February 2012 at 08:21
Well spotted Ron, lucky you.


Comment by dirty harry on 6th February 2012 at 09:08

One of the best shots I have seen of deer in this area.I remember a couple of Fallow Deer escaping from a paddock at Chester Zoo,what a wonderful sight it was as they leapt through a field of golden corn.


Comment by Ron D on 6th February 2012 at 09:50
The information above should read canon D300 200mm lens ,sorry about that. I had not time to put on a longer lens,as it was I backed over my mates foot to get in position. His yelling startled the beasts,making it more difficult.


Comment by David Barker on 6th February 2012 at 11:35
Well done Ron ,they are very timid and you can never get a shot theres always a branch or a tree in the way.Its a case of hide and seek with them .


Comment by john burns on 6th February 2012 at 16:07

Comment by scoop on 6th February 2012 at 16:43

Dont panic John because they never stay in one place.

I walk down Higher Lane every day, and have only been fortunate enough to see one deer, very early one morning a couple of years ago . I had my granddaughter with me so it was doubley pleasing . This photo., gives renewed encouragement to keep on looking . A very good photo., thank you Ron.

Comment by john burns on 6th February 2012 at 19:22
WE HAD THEM AT THE BACK OF OUR HOUSE AND SOME IDIOTS SHOT ONE , LOTS OF IDIOTS ABOUT ,
NOT MANY CARING HUMANS ??


Comment by Ellen on 6th February 2012 at 21:12
Nice shot Ron, well caught.

I've come to the conclusion that the best way to encourage folks such as D**** H****, is to acknowledge his comments,which, I hope are meant to get a rise out of us "animal lovers"! therefore I reserve comment!


Comment by Ellen on 6th February 2012 at 21:14
Afterthought--I was going to say that I only saw two; then I saw the white rear end of the third!


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 6th February 2012 at 21:18
Didnt know we had Deer in dear old Wigan. lovely picture,


Comment by Tom Walsh on 7th February 2012 at 12:04
The deer are in the heather.
The birds are in the sky's .
The mouse is in the hedgerow.
Each captured by camera eye.
What joy it gives to others .
Not fortunate to see, the wonder
of Gods creation,first hand alas to be.
