Roe Deer Buck

I was up at Coldingham on the south east coast of Scotland before first light to try to get to grips with the roe deer again. The forecast was for good weather and with it good light, the down side was that the gales of yesterday were still blowing with gales reaching force eight. I was using a high seat today which is ten feet off the ground and sitting in it in the gales was no easy task. I was holding onto my hat with one hand and the camera with the other.

After waiting for about an hour the small group of roe deer came into  view. I watched them for another hour or so before they came into range of the lens. The buck  was looking particularly splendid in is chestnut coat and as he was the nearest. He came running towards the woodland on my left, here are some images of him.
