I found this by luck in a back garden locally and noticed the rabbit followed wherever the muntjac deer went. The rabbit appears to be a pet that has escaped and now living in the wild. They seemed very affectionate towards each other as if very intimate.

This is cropped from the original by 50% as I could not get any closer without scaring the deer away. Being late afternoon this was shot at 1/30 sec handheld at 400mm f5.6 at 3200 iso so only just acceptable quality. I took many others too which were blurred and no use so this was a lucky one.
