Hooptedoodle #238 - Juvenile Delinquency in Eastern Scotland
Mother Nature right in your face - I'm delighted to see the adolescent Roe Deer bucks starting to practise their rutting fights, but do they have to do it in our garden?
Also, if they are going to do it, could they please take a bit more time over it, and choose a morning when we have a window open, so we can get better pictures? This fight was a bit unfair, since one of the participants hasn't got his horns yet. No-one was hurt.
Things are getting a bit serious - the other morning we had eleven young deer in the garden. They appear to be very fond of our lupins.
