Fallow in hiding.

Over the past few weeks the vegetation in the park has changed into its autumnal hues and the formerly lush green bracken now provides excellent camouflage for the Fallow Deer as they continue to browse on any patches of green beneath their feet. 
 
A brief visit earlier this week provided a brief unscheduled session with a buck and a couple of hinds who only indicated their presence when a head popped up to check out the 'watcher'. 

I have mentioned before that the Fallow Deer come in a range of colours and this young very pale fawn (below) was quite conspicuous once she decided to move around.


The buck spent a lot of time feeding with his head low down but eventually provided a nice pose. FAB.

  12. Great captures Frank. We live in an area with a lot of deer and I see them more as fall progresses. I hope this winter won't be as hard on them as our last winter was.. I wanted to let you know that Nature Notes will stay on its own blog and my personal blog is now at myramblingwoods.com ...Michelle
