photoblog image Calke Abbey Spring 5/7

Calke Abbey Spring 5/7

They have a fine herd of Deer at Calke and their enclosure runs right up to the edge of the main car park. The fencing is ideal for shooting through and I was able to catch these young Deer grazing quite undisturbed by all of we people gazing through the fence at them.  Here is a picture I took on another occasion.

Good capture they don't seem to care your there
Brian Walbey: This is taken through a fence by the car park vintage so I guess they are used to all the noise and people.
I love seeing "wild" animals in any setting!
Brian Walbey: yes they have a very big area in which to roam.

an image of peace and contentness - and I can forget all the we people gazing through the fence!
Brian Walbey: IT is Philine, and I guess the Deer are used to all the noise and people about.

I guess all the wildness is worn off by now, Brian, but still, it's a beautiful sight. I love whenever I see deer (except when they're darting in front of the car!).
Brian Walbey: They have a very big area to roam in Ginnie and will be used to the noise and people. It might be a different matter if the fence suddenly fell down or something though.
I like Elizabeth's ''wild'' interpretation.
We went to IKEA one morning this week and then had a late lunch at Staunton Harrold but didn't have time to visit Calke.
Brian Walbey: Yes, I suppose they are the next best thing to "Wild" having a very big area to roam in. We try and avoid IKEA if possible, our daughter almost lives there I sometimes think, Staunton Harrold for lunch sounds a lot more attractive.
great landscape image
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
These fine looking animals, or should I say their cousins, eat everything in my garden.
Brian Walbey: I'm sorry about that Chad, you must grow some very tasty things in your garden.
Two fine pictures, Brian; I especially like the stag
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elisabeth.

Very serene setting Brian, nice colours and contrast.
Brian Walbey: Yes this is right next to the car park but well fenced off and the Deer don't seem at all troubled by the "human" herd.
What a lovely scene. Very well captured, Brian. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ros.

Well framed Brian, deer herds add grandeur to a place.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John, this herd are very well looked after.

That's a great shot Brian; they look totally unaware of your presence!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin. I guess they are used to people poking cameras through the wire at them.

Very different to the deer in the New Forest; the first whiff of a human and they're off! Your Flickr photo is fabulous.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. They are in a very large wired off area so don't actually come into direct contact with the public, I guess they might run off if the fence wasn't there.
Wonderful pastoral scene Brian.
I like your framing!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
We were at Attingham today. They encourage the children to buy food to feed the deer and also had banners advertising Venison grin
Brian Walbey: We called in at Attingham one early spring Sunday morning many years ago after a weekend in Shrewsbury and thought how nice the parkland is, sadly the house wasn't open. I guess it is not far from you.
Lovely image. They haven't got a care in the world. Cheers, Dave.
Brian Walbey: Not as many cares as we have Dave, thanks for your comment.

I think these might be Red Deer
Brian Walbey: Yes I believe they are Chris, it is quite a large herd when they are all together.
I agree with Elizabeth here Brian!
Brian Walbey: They are a fine herd Juan and well cared for as you can see.

They obviously do not think you are a threat, Brian.
Brian Walbey: They have the benefit of a fence between we humans and themselves Ray, plus it is next to the car park so I guess they get used to everything going on.
