Some while ago I promised to share some images of the Red Deer during the rutting season. So while I'm away you can enjoy the very noisy roars from one of the Red Bucks in Bushy Park.
Red Deer (and Fallow Deer) roam freely in the park and are generally quite tolerant of humans but during the rut it is important to remember that these deer are wild animals and the recommendation is to keep at least 50 metres away from the deer and be aware of your surroundings so that you do not come between two rutting stags or a mother and her calf. I'll admit that I was certainly a lot closer on this occasion but this old bruiser was used to being in the frame.
N.B. This is a scheduled post so I'll catch up with everyone sometime next week.
