Remarkably unconcerned by my presence until the shutter clicked! Watched for about 5 minutes before this, taking Simon King's TV advice of not staring straight at them.

Roe deer

The animal on the left looks to be a full grown female roe deer; dark tips to the large ears, pale circles round the eyes and dark tip to the muzzle. I think the one on the right is a young one, though it is slightly out of focus and difficult to see any detail. Was the one on the right smaller?

The young will sometimes stay with their dam for a year or more.

Roe deer ages

Hi Graham,

Yes, the one on the right was smaller and the pair looked like a female and a juvenile.
