Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 30th November, 2011)
Photo: David Barker (Nikon D3000 70-300mm Sigma lens 1/125s F/5.6.)
That is amazing, well done David. If there is one there must be others
Lovely picture David, he seems to be looking at you..
Well worth the wait.
Nicely captured David. We Just this month went through the Annual Deer hunting season in Ontario.In more than 40 years,I have not got used to the idea of butchering these creatures. Why hunt them with anything more lethal than a camera?
Nothing nicer than seeing a wild deer on the outskirts of industrial Wigan.
The feeling much better if its caught on a video that show its movement.
Good photograph Dave Your patience and persistence paid dividends.
well done david ,
i have seen quite a few over the yaers on my way to work ,biggest i ever saw was a massive stag in a field next to the owls standish
Good on you David, I've seen two on the old line Aspull, and one on the A6 on the way to the airport early morning, but wasn't quick enough with the camera. Got some crackers in Bushy Park though last month. Cheers H.
Ellen, I know exactly what you mean. Where we live is quite rural and we can hear the guns firing during the hunting season. We had nine stags at the front of our house a couple of months ago. I always thought that they were quite solitary animals. It was spectacular to see.
I know people who have seen deer in Borsdane Wood, and Peter and I saw one at Viridor Wood a few years ago; it just ran out in front of us. Well-done for capturing this for us all to see.
Saw one up to its neck in the canal trying to get out with its mate watching from the side . Luckily no idiots with guns came, just the fire brigade !
Ellen, Catherine, I too live on the edge of a huge plantation and hate all the gunshots I hear.. It's one thing to kill, which I hate, but many times the animals just get wounded and die a slow horrible death.. I have a neighbour who kills animals for fun.. I can't stand to look at him... So Thank you David, for shooting with a camera, to give us all a lovely photo to look at...
you get a super cut of meat off them. mi mouths watering just thinking of it TELL WERE IS IT AGAIN I COULD DO A WALK UP THERE EARLY ONE MORNING.
Let us know when you are going dirty harry... a lot of people on here would like to run into you.
The hunting season is upon us here in Spain again and it is horrible here. At weekends they have been known to shoot dogs in front of their owners.As Oscar Wilde said... the unspeakable chasing the inedible.By the way dirty harry, may I suggest English grammar lessons?
Course you could, you Numpty !!!
Harry.....if you wanted attention,here it is, don't talk silly.
If Rudolph is the red nosed reindeer, what's this blue nosed one called???
what only 1 after all those visits
A lovely shot, I walked through Borsdane Wood for years with never a glimpse - must never have been early enough!!!
Bludolph the Blue Nose Reindeer..???
Nice one, Fred! :-)
Thanks everyone,hope to photograph one in the open for next time,but they are very timid and excellent hearing,one slight noise and their off.Your right Ellen,Cathrine,Janet, beautiful creatures leave well alone, except for us photographers.
well done dave, nice to wildlife in my old stomping ground of Haigh
Aww! its cute. Well done bro, u got it in the end :)
Saw Roe Deer in Borsdane Wood, March 2012, nearly ran me over!
Saw Roe deer drinking from brook about half way through Borsdane Wood around midday on 15/08/12. It jumped onto opposite bank, stopped to have a look at us then loped off.
