Deer's Pictures

What Shrine do you Call This
What Shrine do you Call This (Nikon D5300)

Today’s shrine was all about deer. They are allowed to roam all over because they are seen as heavenly animals as a mythical god arrived in Nara on a deer to defend the newly built capital. As usual with Kyoto, the place is littered with shrines that the deer walk through, however they do tend to stick to places where they can be fed deer biscuits which you can buy from sellers all over the park. Naturally the deer all quite tame as no harm will come to them, so they are not above giving you a shove with their head/antlers if they think you’re witholding deer biscuits as I found out.

Dear Oh Deer
Dear Oh Deer (Nikon D5300)

Well bearing in mind I've not taken a picture for ages then I needed to get out and a picture of a dear is better than nothing despite the fact that I have quite a few images of dear in my collection. Like I say, the sun was out and so was I, so it was time to celebrate with a picture. To be honest it nearly didn't happen what with everything going on this weekend, but I was insistent and persistent and so we went out. Lucky really because I think the prediction in the middle of the week was it was going to rain all weekend.

Anyway, this is a little deer in the park and that's about it. The ice-cream queue was as long as ever and the wind was a little cold, but apart from the occasional brave dear getting close to the paths, nothing more to report really.

Tatton Park again and what else would I be taking pictures of? Ducks, no that's Reddish Vales job to house ducks for the taking of pictures. No Tatton Park is the second place to go if you want to take pictures of Deer, naturally the first place is Dunham Masey, but since we didn't think we could take the excitement, we dialled it all the way back to number 2 and headed out to Tatton.

To be honest with the cold, deer were the only things of note, everything was safely tucked up in bed by the looks of it unlike the visitors to Tatton Park, so a quick tour it was, I bagged 50+ bad pictures of deer and then homeward bound.

Deer oh Deer
Deer oh Deer (Nikon D5000)

Dunham Massey is full of Deer and so a day out at Dunham was a Deerfest as far a pictures were concerned... and to be honest I got a little bored of taking pictures of... Deer. So with so many Deer you would expect loads of good pictures of... Deer. You would be wrong. Perhaps I'm a little rubbish or a little hard on myself but I think there was only one really good picture and this was it.

However they were all out, people with huge lenses and tripods and a the car park was brimming. Not the day to go out I think other than the fact that it was a really warm and sunny day. Trust us to choose that.

Anyway I thought that this was a good pic, there were other ones but not many.

Deer Park Alpha
Deer Park Alpha (Nisis DV5)

I missed the shot that I really wanted which came along a little later. This solo Deer ventured towards the path little by little. He was moving a little slow and I didn't have much time for the shot, so I got the best that I could in the circumstances. The contrast is quite bad though. He eventually crossed the path that we were on leaving the protection of Deer Park keep out signs.

Deer Shelter
Deer Shelter (Nisis DV5)

Off to Dunham Massey today for a nice walk. Looked a grim day but once there it was nice enough to stroll in the sun. I thought that this pic looked nice with the felled tree pointing to where the Deer hide out.
