Red Deer

Throwback Thursday: 7th October 2021

My Throwback Thursday post this week is a Red Deer (Cervus elaphus) stag with his harem photographed in October 1995. There’s a couple of young males partially hidden in the long grass in the background.

One of the largest species of deer, males are called a stag or hart while females are called a hind. During the mating season, known as the rut, large, dominant stags hold groups of hinds called harems.

Taken at Lyme Park, Disley, Cheshire, England, the deer park is part of the Peak District National Park.

The Start of Autumn Colour

Throwback Thursday: 30th September 2021

My Throwback Thursday post this week is traveling back to south Cheshire in the early 1990s. The start of autumn colour on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England.

I was on one of the highest parts of the hill looking down on the trees below and isolating interesting sections of colour with a telephoto lens.

Interesting Cloud Shortly After Sunrise

Throwback Thursday: 26th August 2021

My Throwback Thursday post this week is traveling back 14 years to August 2007. It’s a follow up to of sorts to last week’s post, a male Belted Kingfisher flying against some interesting clouds.

Both photos were taken on the same morning and feature the same cloud formation.

This is Chantry Island and its lighthouse on Lake Huron at Southampton, Ontario shortly after sunrise.
