These Deer came close and grazed a while before they spotted me, even then there was a period when time stood still; they'd seen me and knew I'd spied them, yet they remained stationary, until, without warning they scattered through the woodland, pausing occasionally to check I wasn't following. I've noticed Deer have a system, a defencive strategy when fleeing, which appears consistent. The group move as one, then periodically groups of 2 or 3 will peel off in all directions, creating choice for the pursuer, which in turn prompts hesitation, allowing the Deer an advantage. Though, I still believe the forest Deer have become to comfortable with humans, which could be to their detriment.
