  1. Beautiful shot Jivko. I'm not sure how close you got to them, but were you able to notice if the black spots on the mother's head/ear area were ticks? Posted 4 years ago
    1. Thank you, Christine. Not too close - the photo is taken with long lens - 784 mm. But I don't think these spots are ticks. Posted 4 years ago
      1. Gotcha. Around here, deer are usually covered in ticks - especially on their heads. It's terrible. Hope the deer in your area fare better! Posted 4 years ago
  2. Amazing shot, Jivo, a touching scene with beautiful fitting light. Posted 4 years ago

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.
