Picture parade twenty-one

A very local coming together.

This is a very parochial set of pictures.  In that they are of one event that took place last Tuesday, the 10th.  Jean has been putting out food for the local deer for a few weeks in common with neighbours Dordie and Bill.  The wild deer have slowly accepted Jean’s efforts to feed them.

Anyway, last Tuesday afternoon a single deer took the step of feeding on the cob that was put out, with Jean still present.  I grabbed my camera and took the following pictures.

Looking for food, as per usual.

The precious bond from one to the other.

The start of a long relationship.

It was just a magical to be behind the camera as it was for Jean to be accepted by this most beautiful of wild animals.  Two or three deer have now become regular visitors in the afternoons when we put out food for them.

  1. Please be aware that I knew someone in Africa who got killed by a gazelle. In that species, both males and females have sharp horns, true. Anyway they are not as delicate and defenseless as they look, and can get very jumpy… and even angry. This being said, I approve 100%. Very nice pictures.
