This wonderful photo of a family of Chinese Water Deer wandering through Carlton Marshes, in Carlton Colville, was taken by 50-year-old Brian Block.

Mr Block, from Mutford, used his Nikon D7200 with a 300mm lens to shoot the picture.

He said: 'I was visiting Carlton Marshes to shoot a family of barn owls when I saw this family group a few hundred yards up the track.

'I managed to find a spot in the verge to lay and await their approach.

'I love the intimacy of this shot caused by the out of focus grass in the foreground. It gives the impression of you spying on a private moment in nature - which is what I was doing.'
