I had a day out in Studley Royal Deer Park at Fountain's Abbey near Ripon on Sunday. I know it's not the Highlands of Scotland, but with a busy schedule getting ready for my exhibition next month it was the best I could do.
The deer rut is now on. The red deer start off the rut, followed by sika and fallow deer in November. I managed to get some good photographs, including one of this fine fallow buck (pictured above).
This sika buck.
And these two red hinds. They were boxing over some carrots that the keepers had left out for them.
