After a very busy mother`s day lunch , I needed to get out of my restaurant.
Went for a walked in the Chilterns and came across a herd of deer….
At 3h30, this Sunday morning, I was with my eyes wide open looking at the clock. I was in a warm bed and I was knackered. But a question was in my mind. Should I stay or should I go. It took me 15 minutes to decide. And then suddenly I was out of bed, quick breakfast and off I went……
None of my friends could come with me. It was going to be a lonely affair. I like to be on my own….I can concentrate on taking pictures.
It was an incredible morning…misty, cold, and sunny…
No need to say that during the morning I had to take the mick of my friends!!! 🙂 🙂 Gareth, Richard, Martin, I though about you. Honest… 🙂
Look at that power!
Bellowing in the mist…
Fallows are also displaying…
a doe amongst bracken….
I was about to leave when I came across this monster…
This is it, The red deer rutting season is almost over. Again I had a great time this year. It is beautiful to watch those beast fighting for sex! Sunday, the light was not great but I took some nice stuff. The one I like the most was taken in almost complete darkness. I like that “little stag”
2000 iso … anything is possible nowadays
I came across stags fighting
Some bracken are massive!
To end this rutting season, his majesty bellowing!
We must be at the peak of the red deer rutting season. Last Sunday was INCREDIBLE . Probably one of my best day ever with that magnificent mammals. All the condition were there to take some cracking pictures…..
It was very misty when I arrived
Misty and beautiful
It was magical
When suddenly two stag looked at each other in a funny kind of a way…
And Banzai…I saw an incredible battle….IT WAS MAGIC!
Again, I was back with the deer. The rutting season is going well. Those stags are incredible. To see them in the mist at sunrise is magical….
This was taken at 1/6 of a second…incredible what you can do with a digital camera….
Mist glorious mist…
Also came across fallow deer….
