Meet my neighbour... the deer

My Sunday Photo was taken one day last week...a very wet day.
We have the ruins of an old barn just on our boundary and the local deer seem to be quite taken with stopping off for a snack.
I think this particular young buck is partial to bramble bushes.
As you can see...he certainly knew I was watching him, but he seemed not to mind.
I'm not sure if you can see from this photo below the leaf hanging out of his mouth. 
Here's a better look at him...as he carried on wandering.
It was a very wet evening and he looks a little more bedraggled than normal...but then who doesn't when they're caught in a downpour.
Here's a few more photo's.
...and finally an unedited photo of last nights amazing sunset.
I'm linking up My Sunday Photo with Photalife
and Image-in-ing.blogspot.co.uk
Thanks for visiting my place.
I know I've not been able to visit many of my fellow bloggers, but I hope to soon.
Have a great Sunday everyone.

    1. I was thrilled that I was able to get some really close up shots Victoria. He wasn't in the least bit bothered about me or my camera clicking away!

  2. What stunning photos, he is watching you carefully. Is he a Roe deer?

    1. He is a young Roe deer and I think that's why he wasn't particularly bothered by me although he did keep a close eye on me. I just hope he doesn't jump the fence and raid our new veggie plot. Hubby would not be pleased!

    1. We are really lucky Tas, I think it's because we are surrounded by farm and woodland. I was thrilled that this young buck and his pal came so near and wasn't bothered by me at all. I managed to get quite a few photos before they wandered off, thankfully away from our veggie plot!

    1. I was rather surprised he was so relaxed Sarah. I was thrilled he and his friend hung around for quite some time...thankfully not eyeing up our vegetables and flowers.

    1. Thanks, it wasn't a particularly good day for taking photo's as the rain clouds made it rather dull, so I'm very happy with the results.

  6. Deer are so beautiful. We have some that roam local but they are so timid you cannot get near to them to photograph. Have a lovely weekend Neesie x

    1. I'm happy to share these Cathy because usually when they come to call they're on their guard but these two young bucks were only interesting in eating...a little like my young buck here (my son).

    1. I have to confess the sunset came the next day and not on that particular rainy day. He is a magnificent neighbour isn't he?

  9. How fabulous that he stayed long enough for you to take photos. Obviously saw you as a low risk. We get deer in the garden if we're not careful. They like my kitchen garden. I'm too busy chasing them out to take photos! #MySundayPhoto

    1. I was thrilled to see them and particularly as they didn't seem to be in a hurry to leave. I think I must have captured 50+ photo's. He was watching us watching them...very funny, whilst he munched away.
      I'm thankful that they haven't found our new veggie plot yet, because my hubby would be chasing them away too. There's been too much hard work gone into the plot to have them come in and nibble through everything.

    1. It was a very special moment Debbie. I was thrilled that he trusted me enough and waited until I'd taken about 50 photo's of him!

  11. How wonderful to have deer on your grounds. Love the shy look thru the brambles.

    1. I'm just hoping he doesn't overstep the mark and come into my borders or our veg plot. There's certainly enough of other things out there, so hopefully he'll be content with that.

  12. Amazing pics, Denise! Yes, I saw the leaf dangling from his mouth in the first pic. :) Like he was in mid chew when he saw you! Stunning sunset pic. Sending hot hugs (our summer temps have returned) :))

    1. Thanks Rita,
      You should have a little play in https://www.picmonkey.com/
      It's really user friendly and there are lots of ways to change your photo's if you wanted. Frames, writing on them, making a college and lots more editing options. Have fun if you do have a play :D

  16. very nice shots of the buck :) we are starting to see them around here, in the fields and trying to cross the road that separates 2 small forests

    1. Thanks Jennifer,
      My heart stops when they cross the lanes here. They have high banks and it's quite a drop onto the tarmac before a huge jump up over the other side.

  17. Hey Sugar - your young buck is beautiful and it looks as if he could one day have a pretty big wrack.
    I know you must feel as if you still have an open wound in your heart. I know I do.

    1. Thanks Sandy...it isn't easy I have to admit but I'm trying.
      There were actually two young bucks and they've been hanging around for a few weeks now. It's fantastic seeing them just outside our window...although hubby gets a little techy thinking that they might take a liking to the new veggie plot!
