It is lovely and deer are very graceful creatures.
I just wish that they would stay out of my garden!
Just one stag managed to eat a 7ft high and 6ft diameter shrub in one night - and chase it down with some flowers. They pull branches off the fruit trees and trample other plants.
I put up a 6ft high deer fence (chicken wire strung tightly on metal posts. My neighbour spotted a deer climbing over that by running at it, getting its front legs on the top and climbing up with its back legs. I've now solved that problem. Instead of having the chicken stretched taught I've made the top 3ft loose. So when it tries to get its front legs over the top the wire sags backwards towards it and it can't get a purchase with its rear legs.
No trouble since.
