Another Muntjac Deer Sighting

Taking our usual mid afternoon route it was a nice surprise when I glanced down a recently cleared public footpath and spotted a Muntjac deer. It was well down the path and stopped a while watching us.

What the camera could see even on full zoom:


Fortunately one shot was well enough in focus to be able to crop for a better view:


As is usual in such situations all that could be see most of the time was a back end:


We continued with our walk and I had another look on the return journey. The deer was still there so I decided to try creeping closer for a better shot. Unfortunately a dog in a nearby garden chose that moment to bark and the deer disappeared in a flash.

    1. Simon: Thank you. It was a good job it stopped to stare.

  4. A very nice little capture John. They are never easy to see, let alone been gable to get a photogrpah.

    1. Roy. Thank you. I guess they are partly used to people as they roam the two villages and they do seem to stand and watch while they assess any danger.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
