Doe a deer, a female deer….

There’s nothing quite like a Saturday morning post for the WordPress weekly photo challenge to get back into the swing of things after a couple of weeks holiday. This week’s theme – blur.

With summer in full bloom, this beautiful young deer was a blur as she took off in the tall parkland grass of an English country estate. The image would normally be binned, but for some reason I really like the implied movement.  It almost feels like a painting rather than a photo, to me.

I’m going back to England in just a few weeks time now, and I am already looking forward to a visit to Charlecote Park to see if I can get some more shots of their wonderful deer herd.  They roam quite freely, so it’s not always guaranteed, but either way there is always a lot to see there, so it should be a good day out.
