Roe deer in the valley
Another sure sign that Spring is springing is the more frequent sightings of deer in the valley.
On one of my cycle rides to Ingram, I saw these roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) on the bank at the bottom of one of the Branton East Side farm’s fields.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have my telephoto lens with me, so these photos were snatched with a short lens. Consequently, the detail is poor. However, they do give a glimpse into the beauty of these attractive. medium-sized deer.
I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it’s such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her.Ellen DeGeneres
