Just before the end of 2012 during a wander around a local park I located a fairly large herd of the resident Fallow Deer. Adopting my usual stealthy approach I managed to get quite close to one of the older bucks. For this species the males become adult at eight years and provided the antler development is reasonably good, the 'palm' should be about five inches in width. I therefore estimated that this beast may well qualify for the term 'Great Buck'.
He was always alert to my presence but wasn't fazed by the clicking camera.
Whichever way he turned he kept a beady eye on the 'watcher'. I have a few more images of some other members of this herd which I'll share another time. FAB.
