Fresh from their close shave with Fenton/Benton, the deer of Richmond Park have found a new playmate. Kris Wood was out snapping the deer in the snow when he noticed one of the deer approaching a fellow photographer. Says Kris...

He was a keen amateur who broke the first rule of wildlife photography, never take your eye off the animals. The Deer wandered up to him when he was looking through his kit bag and got close enough to lick his lens. He took the camera off the tripod and tried to shoo the Deer away, but it responded by kicking at his tripod, then going for him. He managed to get away unscathed after flapping his glove at it and kicking snow in its face.

You can see more of Kris' work on his photography website and Flickr pages, including a few less-menacing cervine snaps.
