Hind of Fallow Deer
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The IXUS is not the ideal camera for wildlife photography but it was all I had with me on our stroll around the grounds of Dunham Massey Hall just outside Altrincham.|
According to the National Trust leaflet the herd was established 800 years ago and the park was first contained within a paling fence. The public can walk (and chidren run) around the park, now enclosed by a 3-mile-long brick wall, where special areas of retreat are set aside for the deer. The park can only support a herd of 150 and the weakest animals are culled each autumn.
Cropped sides and bottom, quite severely as a pp-zoom. Some adjustment to levels and sharpen in PSE

Yes, too bad about the camera but this is a great capture. I think the overlying branches detract from the scene because they are so dark.
