Pair of Fallow Deer by KeldBach Pair of Fallow Deer by KeldBach
A couple of Fallow Deer bucks (Dama dama), taken at the Jęgersborg Dyrehave, a wildlife reserve north of Copenhagen. From Wiki [link]

The Fallow Deer is a Eurasian deer that was a native to most of Europe during the last Interglacial. In the Holocene, the distribution was restricted to the Middle East and possibly also parts of the Mediterranean region, while further southeast in western Asia was the home of a close relative, the Persian Fallow Deer (Dama mesopotamica), that is bigger and has larger antlers. In the Levant, Fallow Deer were an important source of meat in the Palaeolithic Kebaran-culture (17000-10000 BC), as is shown by animal bones from sites in northern Israel, but the numbers decreased in the following epi-Palaeolithic Natufian culture (10000-8500 BC), perhaps because of increased aridity and the decrease of wooded areas.

it's actually a trio; there's a third deer lying down in the lower left corner. You can see his antlers framing the deer on the left's butt.

Right you are. I didn't notice the third one when I took this shot. Only became aware of it when I viewed it on the monitor :D
