Foreword by Laurie Campbell - renowned natural history photographer for over 40 years
"Roe deer are no ordinary subjects, not least because although they are common throughout Britain, they are shy and exceptionally sensitive to disturbance, with the result that most photographs we see of them tend to show an animal staring directly at the camera.
What we see in this book is entirely different, almost as if we are looking at a different species; one that is relaxed and exhibiting natural behaviour. I am not aware of any other nature photographer working in the UK, or beyond, that has achieved such extensive coverage of so many aspects of the lives of these beautiful animals.
.....thank goodness he did and that we are all now able to share a glimpse into the world of these beautiful animals."
Gaining the trust of a small group of wild roe deer made it possible to observe their natural, undisturbed behaviour.
But please note: This is not a large, glossy, coffee table type of book, produced by a big publisher. Instead, to make it a little less 'commercial' and a touch more individual, this book has been self-published, printed by a local printer and every copy purchased from this website will be numbered and signed, too.
Taking the photographs needed for the 150 pictures that appear in this book, and recording the various events that occur in a roe deer's life, took thousands of hours, but everything has been condensed down into just 165 pages. So, if you have an interest in wildlife, and in particular, the private life of this beautiful species of deer, I believe you will enjoy reading it just as much as I did writing it.
