Fallow Buck on forest path

This was a chance early morning encounter on one of the paths running through the Poundhill Inclosure to the north of Ober Heath. By good fortune the wind was blowing in my direction so this Fallow Buck didn’t detect me and I was able get a few images of him as he approached, framing him so as to include some of the environment. It’s often not easy to get images in an inclosure area as the densely packed trees often mean the deer detect us humans long before we sense them!
