Against the Odds: WordPress Photo Challenge. Roe deer.


wp_20170215_10_06_04_pro-2

So – I’m out with the Daisy dog (a retired racing greyhound) in what I have christened the magical valley. Not a very original name and I really must come up with something more imaginative. I can guarantee that I will spot something rather special when I amble down to it… through the glorious, thick mud at the moment.

Just a few of the things on my spotted whilst walking in the magical valley  are:

  • Goshawk
  • Red Kite
  • Barn owl
  • Kestrel
  • Hare… one – the size of a small dog
  • Rabbit
  • Rat
  • Pheasant
  • Deer
  • Buzzard

And a cast of thousands.

Back to the subject in question… Against the Odds, which is this week’s topic for the WordPress photo challenge https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/against-the-odds/

As the Daisy dog and I stand in the valley I spot two female roe deer in the trees, just above us. I scramble for my phone, with said dog straining on her lead to sniff at yet another blade of grass. I have to quickly delete some images as I’ve rather cleverly filled up the memory. ( What really?  Now of all times?) I wholeheartedly expect the deer, who are well aware of our presence, to move on at any moment. They don’t and I manage to get some shots… of their bottoms (white)

Does my white bum look big in this?

and their heads… seemingly growing out of the trees.

An unusual tree.

I curse the fact that I haven’t got my proper camera with me ( better zoom), but hey … I’ve managed to grab some shots of them.

On cue, they bound off over the hill and the Daisy dog and I amble back home. Inside I’m skipping and doing cartwheels!

I’d say the chances of me getting any shots of those two beautiful animals was Against the Odds!
