New Tawny owl studies & Roe deer -Nymphenburg park

I spent several hours in Nymphenburg park hoping to make a watercolour study, but the first owls I saw disappeared shortly after my arrival.I decided then to go back home, when I was lucky to meet a friend who is visiting regularly the park and he led me to a location where a new owl appeared. Because it was late, I didn`t use my watercolours but my sepia fineliners.
On my way back to the car I spotted a male Roe deer sitting hidden in the bush.
