Close Encounter of the Deer kind !

 .

There have been fallow deer on the Longleat estate since the 16th century and now there are several species. You can pay for a cup of special food and feed them as you drive through the deer park in your car.. I didn’t actually do that but took photographic advantage of those who did 😉

I just loved the expression on this woman’s face !

I liked the reflection of the antlers in the photo below

Of course I had my car window open but when this one stuck his head just inside my car, my 55-300mm lens couldn’t quite keep her in focus..

She looks bored by it all doesn’t she !

Really there was no need to poke your tongue out at all the tourists !!

  1. Great shots, and I love the expression on the woman’s face in the first photo! Many years ago I took a newish car into the West Midlands Safari Park. Monkeys got on the roof and pulled part of the rubber out of the windscreen frame. My children were terrified! Luckily it was a company car so it didn’t cost me anything 🙂
