September 21st 2008: Herd of deer

Herd (?) of deer
Light wasn't so great today, so photo opportunities were not as plentiful as the previous days. Plus it's hard to find a different angle to photograph a stag portrait from when you have already taken so many...... :)

September 20th 2008: Deer Stag, Hoge Veluwe

<Deer Stag, Hoge Veluwe
Day two at Hoge Veluwe. Today we wandered through the woods somewhat unsuccessfully to try and find some mushrooms to photograph, and ended up on the wildbaanweg again in the late afternoon in readiness for the day's rutting.

Still haven't seen any contact rutting, but the stags are getting friskier.

Deer Stag, Hoge Veluwe

Today was our first full day at Natuurcamping Hoge Veluwe after arriving yesterday evening. We quickly discovered that there isn't much wildlife around during the day time, as much of it remains in the woods, which during the rutting season are out of bounds for visitors.

However after around 5pm the deer and stags come out and play. Although it can get pretty busy with a lot of photographers, there are some accessible vantage points along the wildbaanweg where one can get a good picture.
