Driving up a dirt country lane earlier this week, we stopped the car when we saw a field full of fallow deer. After a recent wildlife spotter adventure to observe and find out more about deer, my children were especially excited to see all the varieties of colours in this wild herd of fallow deer. We spotted dappled, light beige and dark brown deer grazing side by side. Of course, within minutes, the deer were aware of us and leapt over a fence back into the woods.
I finally joined Instagram this month – join me here 🙂

Love their color. Always graceful animals and a joy to look at =) #mysundayphoto
Thank you Merlinda. It was fascinating seeing so many different colours in one herd together.
We have fallow deer too and our stag has the lighter colour
Wow your stag must look stunning. And it’s rutting season now 🙂

My kids love deer. Whenever we drive through Richmond Park we try to see who is the first to spot one. 🙂
There are a couple of herds on the various farms around us and each has a white one. They always look so majestic!
