Young Deer

By Maiwand
Young Deer.
Not quite sure of the 'proper' name for a young one of this family. Anyone got an idea.??
Went out this morning to look for my usual birds and found absolutley nothing. On the way back to my car this young fella came clear out on the path ahead of me (about 100 yards ahead) I stood still instantly but of course he had seen me and he dived back into the buses. I crept forward VERY slowly and he appeared to pluck up enough courage to step back on the track although much closer. I had one chance for a shot before he disappeared. Hope you enjoy a look at him.
Most grateful, as always, for the very generous attention given to the Great Bustard and in particular to HobbitDave for the award.Thanks everyone.

An adult, male Roe Deer - you were very lucky to get this photo.............when I come across 'our's', they usually run away barking (they really do sound like a dog!).
