Deers in Flood

Deers in Flood

The snow which fell on the mountains last week is beginning to melt and
coupled with heavy rainfall has resulted in floods in Ravensdale valley.
These deer seemed quite unperturbed that their grazing ground was flooded.

Very rustic. The waters lapping over the grass like that speak of a winter that hasn't quite done with you.

However miserable the weather might be, it certainly offers some great photo opportunities. A beautiful shot of this pretty, wet valley.

I wonder if deer can swim. Great point of view and beautiful scene. Lovely color. V.

Well spotted. Seems strange they would try and feed in the water, mind judging on the way they like to throw themselves at my car I think they may be on a par with pheasants!

A beautiful image. Hope the deers will be all right. V

Shame to see floods back but it doesn't look destructive here, and as you say the deer look unflustered. Great to capture them like this.

I hope they had their flippers on.

Quite an astonishing scene with the deer in the midst of that flooded area. V

A beautiful scene nicely captured. I love that you got the deer (I think) in the water. V.
