I couldn’t wait for the weekend to share these.
It will be delights for this young Red Deer stag. Don’t let the fence fool you these are in the wild they go through this paddock to get a drink in the nearby creek. His antlers have only just come out of velvet and being such a little bloke he normally wouldn’t have all these females. Bigger stags would have fought him off easily. These pictures were taken yesterday morning about a mile from the house.One of the females had a young one but it decided to hide in the grass. I like the way it goes from light to shade. The tear on the females ear would be most likely from going through fences. The clicking of the camera caused them to run after this shot, I was that close.I took this coming back up the track to the house this morning after the Anzac dawn service. This spider had obviously been busy all night making this remarkable web. The dew glistened perfectly.Every tree had webs covered in dew, I thought this one seemed to say it all.
Thanks for viewing. Cheers.
