That's a good photo David, was you creeping around to take their photo - one seems to have spotted you.

Another good photo. In close up you can almost feel their velvet softness.
Lovely

A proper pair of sentries . Always alert . One looks one way , the other another . And those radar ears . Really good photo .

Beautiful but very elusive creatures,have seen a couple in the field behind where I live but didn't manage to get a photo.

Very true Elizabeth, usually early morning and dusk they are seen, always close to cover. However since sheep are now grazing, not seen any. Do the two not mix well.

Lovely photo, well captured. The dear little deers, look a little bit apprehensive.

The keeper did a hunting go
Under his cloak he carried a bow
All for to shoot, a merry little doe
Among the leaves so green, oh

I remember this song from infants school many years ago.
I bet they don’t sing it now!

Veronica they don't want to end up on some ones dinner plate. We see a herd along Lees Lane (Parbold).Very good photo the deer normally don't hang around long enough to allow you to take a photo of them,

I see deer almost daily. They are on the local golf course as are lots of Canadian geese, a few pheasants and coyotes. Occasionally I see the local bald headed eagles.

Why state you are from Hindley?

Comment by: Alan on 6th December 2022 at 18:12

Ha Ha I knew someone would bite.

Comment by: Alan (on Vancouver Island) on 6th December 2022 at 18:19

Just to show that I am not Alan from Hindley.

Alan, dont worry , its nice that you view WW from Vancouver Island & show an interest in the place you came from. I too, look at WW though I left Wigan at the age of 13 yrs....its still part of my history & my interest. Also I have visited Vancouver & know what a nice city it is & our local big town of Kings Lynne has a great interest in the sailor who came to the East Anglian port that bears his name on the docks.
