During my daily life bicycle trip, I saw this Deer
I think that He protection gives to are herd of hinds, I would not go in the meadow, very dangerous.

The fallow deer is larger than a roe deer and smaller than a red deer. The head-torso length is 130 to 170 centimetres and the height at the withers 85 to 110 centimetres. The fallow deer can weigh 45 to 100 kilograms, in exceptional cases up to 130 kilograms. The tail is quite long: 16 to 19 centimetres. The male (called stag or hoe - from Schaufler, German hunter jargon, after the shape of the antlers of adults) is generally heavier than the female (called doe).
There are many variations in colour, from white through light brown to almost black, but usually the back is reddish yellow to chestnut brown in colour and the belly is yellowish white. However, the dominant colour varies by area. In winter the coat colour is grayer. The fallow deer checks twice a year, once in May or June and a second time in September or October. The coat is usually covered with white spots, these are less noticeable in winter. Certain colour patterns, for example all-white animals, have no spots. In black animals, the spots are rather brownish-black in colour, lighter than the rest of the fur. The rump has a pattern of black and white and a black stripe, which extends to the top of the tail. This black stripe is absent in all white and all black animals.
A striking feature, which distinguishes it from other true deer, is the hoe antler. Here the ends of the branches are connected to each other by plates. Only the male wears antlers. It is shed in April and May, after which it immediately starts to grow again. The bark skin is sanded off in August and September. The antlers grow as the animal ages. Older males have smaller antlers.

I hope you like it
