Just Chilling Out.

 While the 'master' of the Red Deer herd kept a watchful eye on his ladies .... AND the watcher ...
 .... everyone else was just chilling out and enjoying some brief winter sunshine ...
.... including a number of much younger Red Deer bucks.
Sniffing the breeze AND keeping one eye on you know who!
After a little bit of friendly play fighting .....
.... its time to chill out again.   FAB.
