#CloseToHome 84 – Muntjac deer 7 – She Spotted Me


I am currently doing my 2nd 366, it’s another leap year; posting ( not taking!) at least 1 photo every day. My last one was in 2012

There will certainly be variety

This is number 217

Part of my #CloseToHome series.


A few weeks ago I was sitting on a grass path, in waterproof jacket and trousers, watching a pair of hares.  I was on my way home because it was spitting with rain, but just thought I’d sit and watch the hares for a few mins.

Something caught my eye to the far right of me and it was this young Muntjac deer walking towards me in a very relaxed carefree way.

I am showing you more photos of it as it got closer and closer to me, until it eventually spots me .  Eye level to a young deer is a wonderful thing and I hope you’ll get a feeling of that.

This is the final post and now she has spotted me.

Isn’t she beautiful and so very close – less than 2 metres away.

She didn’t run away as I might have expected but quite nonchalantly moved across in front of me coming even a little closer, took a long look at me, eyeball to eyeball as I sat in front of her and then walked slowly off to the right, into the Rapeseed field; leaving me feeling very privileged to have been so close.

All of the photos shown in this series will either have been taken in and around my house and garden, from the windows of my house, within up to 35 mins walk ( I walk slowly!) or 20-30 minutes cycle away from my house . They were all taken since 15th March, when I started my self-isolation..

Part of why I am doing this 366 is because I take a lot of photos, I love being out and about, but often they are not looked at for months or even years  and this exercise encourages me to look at them and choose favourites. When my last 366 ended I made 4 photo books of my favourites. I intend to do that again.

If you don’t already know my other blog 1500 Saturdays I hope you’ll pop over and take a look, though I don’t post much these days here
