Red deer photography during the annual rutting season is a truly thrilling experience. This year we were a bit worried that we have missed it as we had to make a trip abroad. Luckily, ten days later the mating season was not over.
At the beginning the weather didn't cooperate with us very well.
After a few rainy days, finally we were rewarded with some beautiful mornings and sparkling jewels of dew.
Mist gives marvelous photographic opportunities. One of the misty mornings was particular memorable.
A week later the mating season was over for most of the stags ... except one. He kept roaring and chasing females for another week.
A few days later sadly but we had to admit that red deer rutting season was over.
As fallow deer rut peaks a week or two later than the Red deer, we decided to look for fallow deer sites. It was a very good decision as we managed to photograph a fight between male fallow deer. It was definitely worth a watch.
