Drone captures sika deer drinking from pond in national park

A drone has captured pictures of a pair of sika deer drinking water from a pond in the dense forest of  Shennongjia National Park in central China.

The pond is called "the eye of the Earth" by local residents.

Sika deer, also known as the spotted deer, are under first-class state protection in China.
