I had a pleasant little amble around some fields this evening as I thought there might be something moving in the late evening sun after a soggy start to the day. A herd of young heifers alerted two deer to my presence and I was treated to my usual view of deer - retreating backsides. They were two does, so I was content to watch. I sat out for a while watching and listening to the normal close of day noises until the local rude boys, aka midges, began to flex their muscles; so I decided to set off home. Standing up, I saw a tawny shape about 300 yards off and the binoculars confirmed the two does I'd seen earlier. So I gave myself the task of stalking them. I didn't take much care, they were down wind and behind a wall, so it didn't take much skill to get to the wall and peek over. 50 yards away and grazing happily, so I watched. One wasn't bothered, the other wasn't sure and kept looking at me, grazing a bit, scratching, flicking her head due to the midges. Eventually she was reassured by her companion's lack of interest and relaxed. I though I'd try and get a bit nearer, but moved just a bit too quickly. She was off like she was pulled by elastic, then turned and gave the longest bark I've heard.
The rough translation was "Oh F******!"
