Oh Deer, Things happen when you least expect them!

Elizabeth is always on the lookout for Deer. Whenever we are walking or driving I hear "We might see a deer" and occasionally we do and Elizabeth is there with the camera to capture the event. Below are a couple of examples of pictures of her deer....


As you can see they are usually shot from way off... BUT this morning was different.....

We had just turned right out of our drive and there in the middle of the road were two magnificent deer... Oh look two deer where's your camera! I said. Elizabeth was caught off guard, there were bits of handbag contents  being thrown around the car. I nearly went in the ditch trying to avoid them... The camera was out, switched on in the blink of an eye. The deer however where faster and made their getaway across the field of rape. Click click click... however being a manual camera setting person, the camera was still on an indoor setting.. Oh Deer...

 

Not the stunning results they could have been... Such is life...

Fields of flowering rape are where to see them - they love eating the flowers and sometimes the delicious temptation trumps the flight instinct. Stake out the colza is my advice.
