|Deer hiding in the grass. Nikon D7000|
Last week we saw a deer in the field on the walk back from school most mornings. Today I thought I would take a better camera with a 300mm lens on it, just in case a deer pitches up again.
Previously, the deer has been very shy and runs as soon as it sees us. Today it seemed much more relaxed and almost as if it wanted its photo taken.
I approached slowly and it kept looking across at me, and then continued to graze on the fresh shoots on the Hawthorne trees.
I got much closer than I expected before it turned and walked casually through the hedge into the next field to chomp on the new shoots on the other side of the bushes.
