|"Mother and Baby Bond" by Natasha Jefferies|
June showed up a lot of good photography from around the British Wildlife Centre. A lot of photos caught my eye this past month, including one of our very elusive grass snake... proving that we do in fact have one in there! and of course lots of the babies and youngsters we have here at the moment.
In the end I decided to choose this photo above, taken by Natasha Jefferies, of one of our tame fallow deer with her fawn.
Natasha has beautifully captured this tender moment between mother and fawn. As a photo, it is clear, clean and has good composition... it can not be faulted, but it is the moment which has been caught that is so special. The obvious love and care, the eye contact between the two and the slight disgruntled look on the fawn as mum is washing behind his ears. It is a lovely photo of some beautiful behaviour, and of one of our animals that is often overlooked at the Centre. Brilliant Natasha!
Natasha's photo will make up part odour gallery in the coffee shop for 2016, and be in with a chance to win a photo day here at the Centre if chosen as the overall winner by our professional judge!
I have linked Natasha's flickr photo stream in her names above, please do go and have a look. This photo is one of a stunning sequence she captured here once day back in June.
