Wild Spotted Deer

I was on my way to Mysore, a popular tourist destination in the Karnataka state of India. I was travelling by coach and on the way, we drive through a protected forest. I kept my eyes open, eager to spot and photograph and wild animals. And not too soon later did a group of Spotted Deer appear by the side of the road.

I quickly grabbed as many shots as I could with my 50-200mm zoom lens. This was the first time I was photographing wild deer, although I have seen them before when I was young. Here are a few individuals.

Apparently it seems like these animals were used to seeing cars and people, as they didn't flee the scene. They ignored us and continued grazing by the road.

A few metres ahead, were several more deer, and some had tall and pointed horns, with a frosty covering. I presume those were males. However, I couldn't take any shots as the bus didn't stop.
