Same deer, slightly different angle. What are the chances there would be 2 deer around with a Russian fur hat stuck on their antlers:-)

The racoon

I'll play. Guessing the bottom one is older. Assuming the same time of year, the bottom deers tarsals are much more stained, has the pot belly etc but the hind end has begun to whither a bit. Both look mature but the bottom appears a touch over the hill.

Edit: I posted this in reference to the original pic before Shug added the "reveal" pic!

Looks like two different bucks to me. Top buck appears to have a slim, pointy-nosed facial profile. Bottom buck appears to have a boxier, more standard shaped snout. There's also a pretty noticeable difference in the tarsal stain....which is meaningful if we assume the 2 pics were taken close to the same time, which appears to be so in the pics. As to a difference in age, that's pertinear impossible to guess from one single pic. Maybe can find out if someone shoots both and has them aged!

Not that it matters, but you have the two pics reversed in the two posts ;-)
