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.
