Doe, a deer, a female deer.

When I met this roe doe she didn't seem to know what to make of me.  I was standing still and she was perhaps puzzled by the clicking of the camera.  She kept turning round, as if to walk away, then turning back and taking a few steps forward.




At one stage a companion popped her head out as well but didn't stay long.

Eventually the doe decided I wasn't worth bothering with and sauntered off but even then she kept her eye on me. Looking at the times on the photos the whole thing lasted only three minutes.  Usually when I see roe deer they are a long way off or running away.  This encounter was enchanting.
