    She's back - group of four roe (Warning, photo heavy)

    Out early this morning with the four dogs and positioned myself down near the sunflower cover crop hoping to catch the roe again.

    As the sun came up I spied a muntjac patrolling the field edge, and up behind two roe bedded down:



    Keeping still I was eventually rewarded with a group of four roe that made their way into the sunflowers. The lead doe is, I'm pretty sure, the same one I've photographed last year - note the visible pedicles, even in her winter coat:



    The two younger does both have marks on their right flanks, one quite subdued but the other very visible. Not sure if these are birthmarks or the result of some type of damage:





    They hung around for a good 30 minutes, providing plenty of opportunities for me to use the camera:











    They were aware I was there, not least because one of the spaniels was loose, but they overcame their nerves and pretty much ignored me. Eventually the farm manager arrived in his Land Rover which was too much for them so they ran into the next field. Walking back along the track I had another chance to grab a few photos, including this one of the doe with the obvious marking:



    As a tractor approached they crossed the path I was on and headed off to a less busy part of the farm, providing a last chance to grab some shots as they were bathed in the morning sunlight:

    Thank you for sharing your stunning photos. Truly beautiful. Seeing scenes like these are more than half the enjoyment of the sport for me, anyway.
    thanks again.
