Fallow deer in winter by Des Ong
As with many animals, the alert posture—head held upright, body rigid—is an important form of visual communication among fallow deer (Dama dama). A doe with a fawn in tow is usually more alert than her male counterpart, but both are on guard when in open areas or in small groups. Fallow deer are shy and generally prefer the shelter of forests and strength in numbers, though outside of the mating season, adult males congregate separately from females with young offspring. These elegant creatures are most active at dusk and dawn. The two shown here were photographed at sunrise in Leicestershire, England.
