Roe Deer Fawns - Dora's Field, Rydal, Lake District by 

These two Roe Deer fawns were amazingly blasé about our prescence and didn’t appear to mind me photographing them. A beautiful surprise on a wonderful walk around Rydal Water in the English Lake District.

The Rash field was bought by William Wordsworth to originally build a house for his daughter Dora. It lies below his house at Rydal Mount. This never happened but the field was inevitably called Dora’s field when Dora died in 1847. William and his Wife, together with their gardeners, planted hundreds of daffodils in her memory. Dora’s Field now belongs to The National Trust.

I live in Warrington in the NW of England. I love all kinds of photography but especially Landscape and Macro. Still have a lot to learn but having fun doing so. Please feel free to comment.

    Oh goodness….these two are just precious! Love the eye contact. Nice write up to go along with this. :))

  • They just didn’t seem to care we were there. We watched them from 40 feet or so for about 20 mins before they toddled off.

    I love that. I had some that would come to my yard a while back and didn’t mind me being there at all. I’m working on a few this year. :))

  • Good Luck
