    More to the calf and hind.

    Always a real joy to see nature up close in the wild. I had the camera on 'rattle gun' of course.

    Some taken as close as five metres. The hind had calved in a blackberry clump and i walked around the corner into them. She initially took off but came back when I called to her.
    She was of course protective as a mother will be and wasn't too alarmed by me,more so my dog that held her attention fairly steady.

    My biggest problem was that I had too big a lens installed for the distance and couldn't back off due to the berry bushes behind me.
    When the calf followed me after the hind went I couldnt take a pic..too close...I got my phone out and took pics of the calf and dog no further than a metre.

    I didnt touch the calf nor did my dog.
