Ninja Skills!

I spent a couple of hours trying to sneak up on fallow deer today. I think I have used up all my Ninja Skills though, as I managed to get quite close!

This young doe took ages to walk out between the trees, but patience sometimes pays off.

I was too impatient and this was my second shot, I spooked him with the first!
It was pure luck that this fella moved his head just as I was looking in his direction or I would never have seen him. Had some serious crawling to do to get closer though!

This was about the best angle and as close as I could get without spooking him. He was dozing nicely and he scared himself a couple of times, making himself jump.
