Jolie rencontre, j'aime la forme de leurs bois.
Brian Walbey: I presume you mean their antlers by using the woods.

I think these big antlers drop off at the end of the breeding season
Brian Walbey: I believe they do Chris, presumably they are supposed to impress the females.

I wonder that you came so close to the antlers.
Brian Walbey: The herds of Deer at Bradgate wander about close to the visitors a lot of the time.

Frame filled with attractive animals...
Brian Walbey: Lovely aren't they.
Gosh, is this real?
Brian Walbey: Yes it's real Mary, at Bradgate there are times when the deer wander around quite close to the visitors.

Great capture Brian, I don't think I've seen as many fallow deer with antlers.
Brian Walbey: They look good don't they.
Obviously, the deer know they are protected!
Brian Walbey: They have an area of the park strictly for them but at some times of the year are allowed to roam freely.
I am guessing the deer here have become used to humans
Brian Walbey: Probably Bill, they keep their distance and hopefully we humans do as well.

Crikey! What a fine set of antlers they have, especially the one closest the bottom of the frame. You did well to get some close to them.
Brian Walbey: At some times of the eyar they seem to eb allowed to roam freely through the parkland, this was one of those times.

What superb antlers, Brian. Good that you could get so close
Brian Walbey: They have an area of the park strictly for them but at some times of the year are allowed to roam freely
They are lovely aren't they! I've not seen a white deer before.
Brian Walbey: I can't say I've seen a white one before either.
