Capreolus capreolus – Cervidae – Capreolinae – European roe deer: a few photos after long waits in the hide in vain. This is a male moulting into his summer coat and his antlers have just lost the winter velvet. Deers are related to goats, hence the latin name capreolus; one can notice that the antlers are pointed backward to allow him to penetrated dense bushes, unlike stags. The pics are not reframed:

Des bois neufs – Après quelques affûts sans résultats, voici un brocard venant tout juste de perdre son velours, la couleur orangée en témoigne. D’ailleurs son pelage montre également qu’il est pleine mue. Ses bois sont bien perlés et réguliers, ce qui est assez rare. Apparenté à la chèvre (d’où son nom latin: capreolus) on peut remarquer que les andouillers (ou pointes) sont portées vers l’arrière pour lui permettre de passer dans les taillis et ronciers denses, contrairement au cerf. Voici donc les photos, non recadrées.

Feeling unsafe with the clics, he chooses to leave…

Passionate about Wildlife, Photography and Wildlife issues. I live in the south of France at the present, but have lived in Africa for 16 years, in the U.S. for 3 years and I have Australia in mind for the future. With my husband, I created and managed a BIRD PARK in South Africa, raising mainly psittacines; the breeding facility housed over 1000 parrots at any given time. I speak French and English alike and manage decently in Spanish. My photography is about sharing fauna's beauty with other enthusiasts!
