This roe deer showed up in a small wild flower meadow next to our garden this week. The next day she was back with her fawn – some of my captures of the two I featured in my post wild about my garden. It was also rather special as Luce and Theo were able to watch them from our home without disturbing them.
What was amazing to observe was that when Bambi disappeared into the shrubs for bedtime, Mama roe then sat down in the grass and kept guard from dusk to dark.

Sooo beautiful – I had to be on the road at 5.30am this morning and I even remembered my camera hoping I’d see some deer. I saw a fox, a hare, rabbits and more birds than I could count but not one single deer!

Not easy to capture them, well done indeed, looks like she is just eying you up before dashing away

Such a beautiful photo and so interesting to read about how the mummy guards the baby like that. You really do see the most fascinating things!
Lovely photo and not easy to capture as they’re so shy.

What a wonderful capture (I clicked through to the full post to see more pictures of this beautiful animal too). We had a deer (I don’t know what sort) in our garden recently which is pretty urban – we live in a town – but it was so frightened I couldn’t get a good picture. I think you commented on my post about it, so sorry if I’m repeating myself!
Kriss MacDonald says
Yes I remember your post on the deer who was running around frightened in your neighbourhood – hopefully it found it’s home or herd okay!
Beautiful photo and how lovely to be able to watch the deer from your own home.
Wow that’s an amazing sight. And so well captured too!
