A day out at Bushy Park
While I was in Bushy park the Stags were getting amorous.
Lots of Stags running around like He-man chasing the females. The females were getting quite skittish and I am pleased to have managed to get an action shot of two females running away with the stag chasing (see below).
At one time I was running around a tree trying to avoid getting too close, but it was difficult, because I seemed to be in the thick of it all. In the end, I had to take refuge in a tree for a while, as the Stags were running around fighting each other, in a display of dominance, over who would get all the girls!
When the stags were bellowing, it was a very haunting sound and it would travel across the whole park, you will see on my pictures of a Stag’s head it is well back and mouth open, it’s just a shame you cannot capture sound in a picture. It was a deafening sound that’s for sure!
There will be some more pictures from Bushy Park in the gallery and in the shop for you to purchase in the coming days, once I have chosen my favourite images.
I did get nervous with all the Stags roaming around, but felt it was worth it. There were quite a few visitors around whilst I was there and I would suggest that if you ever get the chance to go and visit Bushy Park, I believe you will enjoy it.
I hope you enjoy the pictures I have taken and that you continue to enjoy them as much as I have in taking them.
Stay tuned for our next blog!
