·         The Roe Deer Capreolus capreolus is the smallest and most widespread of the three native species of British deer. Males are known as ‘bucks’ and females as ‘does’. Roe Deer are largely crepuscular in habit and one will often have no more than a fleeting glimpse before they melt into the woodlands. The best method of seeing them is to stand perfectly still once a sighting has been made so that they won’t feel threatened. With a bit of luck it will then be possible to photograph them. Any movement when raising a lens should be slow and steady in order to avoid spooking them.
