A young deer tries to help another after twine becomes tangled in its antlers.
The buck struggles in vain to remove the large bundle that has become wrapped around his herd mate's head.
The animal can be seen trying to unravel the orange coloured twine by using its small antlers.
However, despite the deer's help, it is so tightly-wound neither of the animals could remove it.
Ray Whitfield, 58, who captured these photographs at the New Forest's Stoney Cross, an old World War Two airbase which is now home to wildlife, said the buck was 'determined' to help.
