Here be dinosaurs

Went out this afternoon to get a shot or two for the Black and White Challenge group and had stroll round my local woodland. It is a very small piece of Epping forest and gets very few visitors and it was no surprise when I flushed out a Fallow deer doe and her young hind. I was mooching about looking for photos when there was a sudden noise to my left and both animals sprang out of a large clump of bracken and made off at speed.

This area of woodland contains a lot of fallen and rotting trees and so I found some other animals here, or at least strange bony remnants of them.



I shall now have to rename it Jurrasic wood

Lucky you seeing deer; I've never seen any in Epping Forest although I'm up there regularly. But I know what you mean about interesting logs and fallen trees. They make great photographic subjects. Smile
