Oh deer...

By TrevBatWCC    
Still in Charlecote Park where I photographed my previous upload of the Summerhouse, there were many Fallow Deer about, some roaming around in groups on foot, others like these just lounging about basking in the winter's sun. I've never seen or been amongst deer so close up as these before, only ever seen them from a distance, so it was wonderful to be there right amongst them. All these were taken at the long end of my zoom, at 300mm. I believe deer are timid creatures, and thought if I got too close they'd run off, or they'd chase me off, and I didn't fancy being on the receiving end of those antlers! 😳
Reprocessed these three images to upload on here, especially for HobbitDave! 🦌
A day for staying indoors, and though it's bright and very sunny here in Wakefield, it was white over with a thick frost earlier, and my iPhone weather tells me it's just -3C out there... 🥶

Many thanks to Colleen, Joline, Norman (Owdman), Dave (HobbitDave) and Isabel (Chinga) for their User Awards on my previous upload, The Summerhouse, Charlecote Park , most appreciated 🏆👍

Great photgraphs Trev. I went out very early a few months back to a local spot where there are [reputed] to be a lot of wild deer. Wanted a dawn shot, so was pitch black when I got there. Saw some in the headlights, but all gone by the time I parked up.
I'd also underestimated how late the sun rose in december so after seeing nothing, and freezing for an hour or two went home. It was still dark when I got home!!

Fabulous captures Trev. They are beautiful creatures and with those antlers, best seen from a safe distance!

Beautiful deer images Trev.
We see them in Glencoe when they come down from the hills
and you can get really close to them. You need to be careful in rutting season when
the stags are trying to attract every female in sight.
We've also been on a Feed the Deer walk in Aviemore.

Lovely set Trev. I guess that in Charlecote they're used to bipeds with cameras Wink
