Roe Deer, Capreolus capreolus, across Keston bog. Keston Common, 8 September 2012.
This scene is five minutes from a busy spot by a small lake, with kids and parents and fishers and an ice-cream van. I was on a path along the edge of a small bog, one which was studied by Charles Darwin, and on the other side a Roe Deer was picking its way along the edge of the trees. It's very good to see such large wildlife practically on the edge of suburbia.
This is when it's very useful that the lens I use for close-up macro photographs also works as a normal medium length portrait lens.
