Deer at rest

 Out for a walk in Derbyshire, we spotted a herd of Fallow Deer.  It is always a joy to see such animals at rest.
 Of course, a big lens and a favourable wind do help to keep the animals calm and unaware of the camera.
 It is always rewarding to be able to photograph from a distance.  These deer are 600 yards away across the River Derwent.  There is no way we were going to be seen as a threat to them.
The bos stag was clearly visible, and alert to any threats from other large stags that may intrude on his territory.
