      It made me think of the pushmi-pullyu from Dr Dolittle.

      Great photo!

      I don't think that it would be too hard with Photoshop. And I agree about the photo - indeed the whole set of these deer in the water is splendid.

      I can't think of another UK collection that has Swamp Deer that have access to any/such a big/deep area of water. Woburn's don't since some years ago they re-located them seperately in the small park around Paris house, while West Mids may have a pond of sorts. But at Whipsnade they certainly use the water a lot in summer.
