Roe Buck

By MossyOak  
I was lucky enough to get these this morning whilst out walking Missy. It had no fear at all, I wish it had as I couldn't get back any further to get him all in. Full frame with the 800mm
V4, well I couldn't leave Missy out could I.

Hey Pete any chance I can have my messaging back yet. Sorry, Apologies, bended knees and all that.....Smile

It's certainly not a yearling by the looks of it Richard. Certainly a fair bit older than that.
Why not email Pete and ask him about your messaging if you're trying to get it restored. No point keep mentioning it on the images you upload IMO, as the chance of Pete seeing it is quite remote I would imagine. With many thousands and thousands of members, I doubt he has the time or inclination to read the text accompanying every uploaded image Wink

Many thanks Justin. What baffled me was the lack in size of him, you can't get any scale in the images but he was only about 3 feet to the shoulder.

I've given up emailing Justin, I always get the same answer and have openly admitted what I said was wrong to a certain member who I retaliated against there inappropriate comments to me personally and publicly, sadly he was warned and I was banned. Nuffield said, just want to get on with photography and life Tongue

It's hard to believe Richard but a fully grown Roe is usually just a fraction under 2.5 foot, just up to about mid-thigh level on us. They certainly look much, much larger than that, especially from a distance or through a telephoto lens. Of course their winter coat is very thick and always makes them appear much more stocky and well built than they actually are. I'm constantly amazed at just how small they are and it seems that 99% of times, their small size isn't readily apparent, unless you're fortunate enough to get a really close-up view, as you have done here.


Quote:you can't get any scale in the images
I can totally relate to that. I find that when they're stood amongst the vegetation it's very hard to imagine just how small they really are. I often find that it's when they walk along an open path, for instance, that their diminutive size becomes more apparent. I guess it must give a more obvious sense of scale.

The fact that he had so little fear is another good indication of maturity. The very young Roe are usually fairly inquisitive, then they go through a nervous stage, then as they mature they tend to be more relaxed and then get wiser and less easily spooked the older they get.

Many thanks Justin, very valuable info there and really appreciated. I'm hoping he feels safe in a new cleared area with cover and fencing to keep dogs out, so hopefully he will remain in this area for a little while so I can get some more shots of him.

I think for me it's V3. & v4. as a child I spent many hours in Bushy park Hampton Court, I knew the Ladies of grace and Favor in the palace and have a feeling for the place, I maybe seen as a loose cannon by some! well maybe I am! I do not apologise for that! and never will, you Richard I know where you are coming from; and in part I agree, in my own way I am just as dedicated as I feel you are to photography! attitude is a poignant factor. I do not think of me I wish to encourage others! the world of photography is wide open and I hope the young will embrace it with all it's technology and go forward in all it's aspects, and that is my aim, you are a good photographer! forget you grievances please hold your head high and help others you have nothing to loose and everything to gain regards Leon the Lion.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

I have never in all my years seen Roe Deer in Bushy Lion
I am quite taken aback that you found time to comment but failed to comment on the photos which is the purpose here. This to me looks like a way to make me bite. Fortunately I am more than qualified in psychological aspects through many varying military roles. I aim to get my messaging back by not falling into your trap Wink and thus will not say anymore. Nice try but no cigar. Sorry to disappoint. I am not allowed to comment on your photos, so I ask please do the same Smile

A truly beautiful set, I do hope this animal will stay a while and allow you further opportunities to get more pictures and Missy well! Cracking shot she is adorable and you show her well.

An excellent set again Richard - I wish I had the same consistency that you manage!! Glad to see Missy has not been left out! She is a star in her own right I think! Lou
