Farm deer, Utuwai

They're confined to a large, rough paddock on a farm at Utuwai, but if they didn't have ear tags you'd mistake them for wild deer.

Zhoen — yes. There's a kind of life to these that just isn't there in most domestic stock.

I haven't commented for a while, but am enjoying all your photos, Pete. I love the kind of fragility of this image - something to do with the fine, bare branches and the alertness/brittleness of the deers' expression, as if they're poised to flee.

Thanks Lisa. I saw these two looking back at me and just knew this was the photograph.
