Deer in the Woods

deer in the woods, originally uploaded by jahansell.

An interruption in the tour of Ancramdale. I went out for a jog last night and saw, on Low Road, this deer, not fifteen feet away. It had a strange feature, which you can't see from this angle: its tongue was hanging out of the side of its mouth. I don't know if it was doing it on purpose or if it sick or injured in some way - it was quite a strange sight. It watched me as I tiptoed closer and closer, but eventually bounded away with another, larger deer that I assumed was its mother.

Nice meeting with is very shy animal. It's very difficult to get so close of them.

I hope it wasn't injured. It looks pretty good in your photo.
