I was just thinking of another meaning. Of how deer fray the velvet off their antlers to mark territory. And I was thinking of how I sat in the grass at Charlecote Park and watched the male roe deer grazing. And, as I sat there, a small group came running down the meadow to join the larger group. They rubbed antlers, smelt noses and accepted each other.

A fray of sorts.

For the wordpress weekly photo challenge, Fray.

      Thank you so much Ida. They’re storybook deer, aren’t they? 😀

    How cool! I thought deer only had spots as fawn, but these are very cool.

      North American deer grow out of them, don’t they? But these roe deer have them always. 😀

    I just want to rub those velvety antlers!!

    • Reply Veronica August 23, 2014 at 10:06 pm

      Me too, but they’re a bit bigger than Bambi, and a bit wild. 😀 Wonder if they drop their antlers in winter…hmmm.

        Oh, wouldn’t that be wonderful to get a set of them after they dropped. Wow, the things you could do with a pair, haha

      Oh my gosh, it really was. I can’t describe the feeling of sitting in that grass watching them graze just a few feet away from me. 😀
