  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 3 months 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 3 months 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 3 months 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 .

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
