|EUROPEAN ROE DEER (my 900 th post)|
(sorry for the quality, but they where very far from my camera).
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 95â€“135 cm, a shoulder height of 65â€“75 cm, and a weight of 15â€“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 (2â€“3 cm), and barely visible. Only the males have antlers.

Great action shot of these healthy looking European Roe Deer. They appear to have more of a compact body shape compared to our white-tails. Excellent detail and just the right exposure. Well done!!

Hi Marius,great timing,but this time not for an in flight bird but for the deers jumping. The quality is still good despite the location and the fast mouvement,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
Beautiful natural habitat picture. Odd number composition could have been more attractive ;-) although I know it's not an east idea to find them in nature. Colour looks good.
Thanks for sharing,
