Morning all. My Mum has slight cataracts, and claims she can't see too well. So I am wondering how she managed to spot this deer, who is well hidden, from a moving car! It was well back from the road too. Anyway thankfully she did or we wouldn't have seen it either. It wasn't too spooked by us, and just stood watching. Taken on the road to Ardnamurchan. Thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's upload, and a big thanks to CarolG for her UA.
