  1. Very sharp and beautiful centre of image, telling a warm and delicate story. I do wonder why you did not choose to crop the frame a bit, so that only mother and child are visible.
    Wow, shot with an ixus I see.
    Have fun!

  2. Crop a photo? Heathen!
    No, I never crop photos. I feel that it detracts from what the image represents. If it was going to be used for a purpose then probably it should be cropped, but here we should see the full image as it tells us extra.
    Here it tells us that the pair are part of a larger herd.
    And yes, I use an Ixus. Which is possibly the reason I don't actually upload many photos. Because I just can't compete with real photographers with professional equipment and lenses.

The Fallow Deer is a ruminant mammal belonging to the family Cervidae. This common species is native to western Eurasia, but has been introduced widely elsewhere. It often includes the rarer Persian Fallow Deer as a subspecies , while others treat it as an entirely different species .

The male is known as a ''buck'', the female is a ''doe'', and the young a ''fawn''. Adult bucks are 140–160 cm long and 85–95 cm shoulder height, and 70-100 kg in weight; does are 130–150 cm long.. more
