I’ve had a lot of spare time on my hands lately, due to a recurring back problem which I’ve just about recovered from, so I decided to produce some calendars. It’s quite an enjoyable little project, if a bit time-consuming, but that wasn’t really a problem for me!
This fight was over in about 5 seconds!
This is a short post purely to share some images.
I’ve spent several mornings in Richmond Park over the last six weeks or so, mainly to photograph the deer during the autumn rut – the time of year when red deer stags and fallow deer bucks fight for dominance and the right to mate with the female hinds and does respectively.
A tick in place on my thigh
Photographing the deer (or anything else) in Richmond Park in the warmer months presents a few (very) small challenges – namely ticks!
If you’re squeamish about creepy crawlies (especially the ones that feed on you) then click away now!

The day was October 2nd
2011. I can remember it as if it was yesterday. Which is strange, as quite often I can’t remember what I was doing yesterday!
It started off just like any other photography outing. I was in Richmond Park before sunrise, a routine I had become well accustomed to.
