I met this Red-brocket Deer at the beach of the River Cabin. She was grazing. She wasn't really alarmed by my presence but was surely cautious. I decided to take a close up shot of this marvelous animal and you can surely see more. Like for instance the ticks seen at the edge of her ears and the little bumblebee just passing by. And don't forget about the pretty eyes.
The Red-brocket Deer is quite a champion when it comes to freeze-at-the-spot.

About 9 years ago I have never known that Deers do live in Suriname. Let alone see one in real life. When I first spotted a Red-brocket Deer crossing over the airstrip of Kabalebo, my first thought was that it was a stray dog. But there are no stray dogs in the forest far away from civilization.
Quite often seen at the edge while eating some fresh leaves or grass. And most of the time with their back turned. They usually give you this silly look when approached but seconds later they jump into the dense bushes.
