Big was my surprise when I stumbled on something I did now know existed in South Africa outside the zoos. At first I thought I had too much to drink the previous night. Thanks to
Klaus (tarantula-man) who helped me put a name to this "fellow", yes, it is apparently a
Fallow Deer or Dama Dama.
These creatures have the most amazing long eyelashes.
Thank you for visits and comments to the "Vierkleur". It was heart warming to realize so many people cared for cultures elsewhere:

A wonderful creature !! Your shot is so clear closest
Like "Busi" signed discreetly ! Great done, Piet
Kind of "antilope family" or "cervidé family" ="cerf in France,
renne in Finland,caribou in Canada"?
May be I'm talking on nonsense ( dire des bêtises in french )
For info about "antilope", because in North Africa,Marocco for example,
there's a lot of antilopes (gazelles in French)
"arzel"(masc)"arzella"(fem) in native language
so I'm going to click on your links added to know more
Amitiés & hugs

Well! that's one creature I AM familiar with ... it was a New Year's Day family tradition [in my first marriage] to feed the herd of fallow deer in a nearby park. The children loved it and it was a very good way to chase away a hangover I might add. Great shot!
