Animals in forest of Sénart

A roe deer. Here called "chevreuil", and as he's an adult male, more precisely "brocard". He nicely paused for me and stared right at me whilst I shot. Then he left as there were a lot of people enjoying the forest for the first fine day after four days of rain and storm.

And here's a Siberian chipmunk, named here "écureuil de Sibérie" (or "de Corée"???). I was glad to catch sight of this sweet little fur ball; later less of reading he's a huge bearer of Lyme disease, transmitted by ticks... It seems borders of forest of Sénart are a special spot for this disease, thanks to the so-said fur ball!

Yes. I must admit it's Sophie who saw them first. She has an eye for that! I have the one for photos LOL. Though squirrels and the like I detect by sound.

A walk in the forest sounds like a great thing to do... and a reminder that I really need to get myself out of town and hike somewhere. Thanks for sharing these pics. I know how hard it is to photograph chipmunks. They move so fast that it's easy to end up with just striped blurs!
