I took this shot of a pair of red deer rutting in Richmond Park, Surrey, way back in 1978. My camera was a small point and shoot, can’t remember which one but I know it was a cartridge camera. Being a coward at the time, I kept a fair distance from them but managed to get this shot.

Hi, my name’s Chris. I live in the beautiful county of Monmouthshire.
When I was 10 I was given a Brownie 110 for a school trip – not a single shot came out! But ….. the photography bug was born.
My interests are broad in both subject & style leading to a diverse portfolio – check out My Directory at http://www.missmoneypenny.talktalk.net/ to see just how varied my style & products are.
I hope you enjoy your visit, my sites have been created with you in mind.

    Well captured!

  • Chrissie was a very young baby in a pram when I took this shot so I was reluctant to get any closer. I wish I’d seen it more recently, I would have got a much clearer shot

  • I wish I’d got closer but I had my baby in a pram with me and couldn’t take the risk

    I’m not too sure I’d be getting too close either Chris!

  • No – especially as I had my daughter in a pram with me :)

    You did the best thing, they can be aggressive when they are in rut like this and competing for females. They are still wild animals, but it would’ve been a great thing to witness.

  • It was amazing and a bit intimidating, red deer are so large and powerful
