Fallow Deer, England

Photograph by Mark Bridger, National Geographic Your Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Pictures

In England, a fallow deer fawn stays close to a buck. Dama dama isn't native to the U.K.; the species is thought to have been introduced to Britain by the Normans in the 11th century. Today it's widespread in England and Wales.

Why is it that sometimes a download link isn't available?  IMHO for a picture to be used it should have to be (a) legaly able to be shared as a downloadable wallpaper and (b) of high enough resolution (1280+) to serve as a legit wallpaper image.  Can we get someone from NationalGeographic to explain whats up?

Reposting for todays image to hopefully get exposure & response.
