Mesopotamian Fallow Deer 5
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|After it seemed that the Mespotamian fallow deer had disappeared completely from Israel, in the fifties a number of deer were found in a forest in Iran. To save them from extinction, some of them were transferred to a reproduction center in captivity. At the end of the seventies some were brought to the Mount Carmel Nature Preserve where the small herd slowly increased and today it is the world’s largest herd of this particular sub-species, numbering over two hundred head. Dozens of deer have already been returned to their natural surroundings and in the Keziv Stream in Western Galilee|

I love this shot. He is in action, blends into his environment, and the texture is so there, I feel as if I know what his fur must feel like. I think you might've also caught him right after *cough* going to the bathroom? In spite of that, I like his look, the way he seems to be calling out.

Preciosos animales y bella composición.
una nota interesante y muy emotiva al leer que esta especie está recuperando sus hábitats naturales.

buen pov, saludos
I guess he was walking after a female there.
Nice to see this survivor (unknown to me since now)
