Our local Roe Deer

They live in the wood on the other side of the lane from our house, except when they eat my wife's flowers!

Is venison stew on the horizon, I wonder?

Re: Our local Roe Deer

Anne and I were out in the local forest attempting to take a few pix of the many deer that roam there.
The high winds and torrential rain with flying debris put a stop to our efforts.

Pleased you had ideal weather when taking yours. They look great.

Venison I have never tasted.

Regards. Barr1e

Re: Our local Roe Deer

And how could you eat something looking like that? I tried venison once, and really did not like it.

Like #2 best. Roe deer aren't easy to photograph, very skittish usually (round here, anyway)

Re: Our local Roe Deer

I love deer to both view and photograph and also to eat. My favourite species is the Fallow Deer, frequently seen in the New Forest not far from where I live,
although it is Roe deer that we get in our garden. I can never get to photograph them as my wife shoo's them off as they eat her prize shrubs.

They have stripped the garden before now and roses are their real delicacy so we are unable to grow them. So controlled management of the deer population is a good thing thing with appropriate culling when required. Our local butchers always usually have venison in stock or can get it to order! Funny that!

Venison properly marinaded and cooked in red wine is deleicious!

Re: Our local Roe Deer

Hi Mac - Now I know what your Robbie Burns was on about when he wrote, "Chasing the wild-deer, and following the roe, ..."

It's a legendary creature and you have honoured it well, particularly in the second shot that I like a lot.

Haha! We get mainly muntjacs, but a few roe deer too; and in a few places, Chinese water deer. Best time to see muntjacs and roe deer is around dawn or late-ish at night....in your car headlights, crossing the road, seeing these two bright things hurtling towards them, and stopping to get a better look........ And it is NOT a good idea to run into one - they make a mess of the car!

It's usually very hard to get close enough to roe deer in daylight to get decent photographs; they are usually on the edge of woodland, and typically, on private land. As soon as they see you move, they are ready to run. You were lucky to be able to get such good shots of them.
