Jack of the Green! Jack of the Green! Jack of the Green!

We were on one of our many roadtrips on the Isle of Skye. We drove on a curvy road and after a curve we suddenly saw four deer right by the side of the road. We stopped the car, got out quietly and spent a long time taking shots of them. I love this shot because it shows so much detail of the horns. The most fascinating part of the deer.
