Deer wallow
Deer wallow
Deer like to bathe in mud. Once I walked for a day with a red deer, and no muddy hollow was passed without the hind having a good roll in it. The reason for this behaviour may be an anti insect tactic. Here the bog near Loch a' Phuill Dhuibh is churned up by the frequently visiting bathers.
