|EUROPEAN ROE DEER|
AS YOU CAN SEE THEY HAVE A PERFECT CAMOUFLAGE....
The European roe deer (Capreolus capreolus), also known as the western roe deer, chevreuil, or simply roe deer, is a Eurasian species of deer. The male of the species is sometimes referred to as a roebuck. The roe deer is relatively small, reddish and grey-brown, and well-adapted to cold environments.
The species is widespread in Europe, from the Mediterranean to Scandinavia and from Britain to the Caucasus. It is distinct from the somewhat larger Siberian roe deer.
The roe deer is a relatively small deer, with a body length of 95–135 cm, a shoulder height of 65–75 cm, and a weight of 15–35 kg.
It has rather short, erect antlers and a reddish body with a grey face. Its hide is golden red in summer, darkening to brown or even black in winter, with lighter undersides and a white rump patch; the tail is very short (2–3 cm), and barely visible. Only the males have antlers.

A nice shot of this attractive pair of Roe Deer. They are much smaller then our white-tails, but very similar in appearance. The main difference that I see is they don't have the long flag of a tail of the white-tail.
Your fast 1/4000 shutter froze them in stride and thus produced excellent detail. I like the framing and the colors are natural. TFS.
great capture, TFS Ori
Again very beautiful BG and composition. Roe Deers look nice in such natural habitat. But in my test bit soft. But well exposure even in such unfriendly sunlight from above.
