Up With The Sun

Today is very wet and is a welcome relief from the very hot weather of the last week. I found it too uncomfortable during the heat of the day to be out and about with the camera so I opted instead for a very early start.I was up at 4am and away before 5am just as the sun was rising.On previous early morning jaunts I had discovered an area on a local fell frequented by roe deer.Up to this week I had only brief and distant views in poor light. On a beautiful summers morning this week however I was to enjoy some fabulous views of a young buck and doe roe deer feeding not far from the roadside.When I stopped the car they moved away a little but commenced feeding again and for the next forty five minutes I was treated to some wonderful views of these elusive and very shy deer.They were within range of the big lens and I captured hundreds of images.I have shown some of the images below and I hope my followers enjoy them as much as I certainly did in obtaining them. I have since been back to the area and taken more early morning shots and will incorporate them into a future blog about the other wildlife I encountered on these early morning sorties. Thanks for looking in.
