Shots of the other large mammal that can be found in numbers in the early mornings at bushy park: the wildlife-togger
As major predators they will tackle a wide variety of prey and are insatiable capturing animal after animal.
In my observations they fell into two distinct camps - the lone hunter moving around quietly, stalking their prey compared to the pack animals gathering in large groups, brazenly standing out in the open whilst still feeling the need for extensive camouflage! and content it seemed, with the limited prey that came to them.
Both kinds can be seen sporting large proboscises, and indeed the larger the better for both status with their peers and for making it easier to capture their prey.
Spotting a female of the species is an extremely rare treat, particularly at silly o'clock in the morning and I saw none in the whole 3 hours that I was there Sad

I am pleased to say that this female has never, ever taken a picture before sun-up and a good breakfast.
Totally insane, plus this looks ****** freezing. However if anyone is stuck for something to do to while away the odd moment, can I suggest mousing over V& & V8? Best laugh I've had all evening.

An excellent and entertaining series. I guess the females were lying in wait somewhere picking off the finest shots but that they are too shy to show them Wink
