Deer in Richmond Park
Within minutes of parking the car, there were the Fallow deer. We were very careful to walk round them so they couldn't smell us and it worked. I got so near it was amazing. I was so in awe, l almost forgot to take images! It is really eerie sometimes, the way a deer will look "straight" at you. Just for a minute, you feel you should slowly back away, then you realise actually you are safe. The reason being it is not the mating/rutting season, so in theory they won't charge you!!
