After Friday's incident when our granddaughter didn't seem to take any notice of the Roe deer on our neighbour's field, but Saturday morning was different.
She was still eating breakfast. I was the first to spot the deer and ran upstairs to grab my camera, taking my first picture from our bedroom window at 08:28. At that point it was half way between the house and the bridge to the island.
A few moments later and the deer had turned to face the camera but was continuing to browse the grass by the lakeside. It remained in that general area for some time, but came ever closer to the house.
By 08:51 it was as close to the house as it got and I was back in the lounge. Our two year old was certainly taking notice.
As it was going out of sight behind the reeds I returned to the bedroom and manage to capture another shot as it was just about the jump the dyke that separates us from our neighbour.
My final image in the sequence was taken at 08:52, as it began to run away across our neighbour's land.
