Roe Deer - Cleveley Gardens 26-03-13

The Arctic conditions tempted this Roe Deer to come and browse on my neighbours vegetation which, due to luck, I managed to photograph.

Interesting how the white rump-patch against the snow disrupts its outline. I'd only thought of that as a herd-signal before, not camouflage.

I surprised one on the canal bank at Tenterfields once that surprised me by diving straight in the canal and swimming across to get to the field opposite.

And two people I know saw 2 deer swimming across the middle of Baitings Res!

I must admit Steve, I may jump in if you took me by surprise as well.
