Bushey Park

Last Saturday I set my alarm early to meet my friends Jenni & Bob to go to Bushey Park to be there for the dawn the idea being to photograph the Deer.  We arrived in good time and a silky mist hung over the area, as we crossed the bridge we noticed a heron fishing for his breakfast, but where were the deer?  We caught sight of one looming up out of the mist, he was the first of many sightings we were treated to.

He is trying to tell us who is the boss,

This one was hiding

But he wasn’t shy for long

The morning light creates an atmosphere and intensifies the colours, it is truly magical

The rut was taking place and the young bucks try to cover their antlers with bracken to make themselves look bigger and bolder and then try to challenge the top stag, this little guy had made a bit of an effort

But soon got distracted by breakfast, you will have to make a better showing than that or you wont get anywhere with the girls, ah well maybe next year!

Lots fo Photographers around infact probably more toggs than deer!  These are my intrepid friends Jenni & Bob!

Two little boys chill out and watch the photogs

While jenni gets up close and personal in the interest of Photography

This guy senses and intruder!

 Gets ready to see him off!  Off he goes with his toung out! will live to fight another day!

    I will never wear Bob’s hat again. You have some great images here.
    I think Bob is edging towards a trip in the snow. Interested? Will be in the New Year I think unless there is some next monday. We nearly went a couple of weeks ago but Bob thought it was irresponsible to be on the roads.
    Love Jennixx
