Wordless Wednesday - Herd of Deer

There are lots of wild deer roaming the wooded countryside around our home, and until they were culled a couple of years ago the herd was over 100 strong. While they are beautiful animals, they can also be very destructive - especially when 30 or 40 of them get into your garden and eat all your roses! They're usually quite wary of humans, but at this time of year the stags are much bolder as they lock antlers with each other and compete for leadership of the females.
