PHOTO GALLERY: Deer in Richmond Park, London

Richmond Park is a 2,360 acre park in south west London and is home to more than 600 red and fallow deer who roam freely in Richmond Park and have done since 1529.  The park attracts joggers, dog-walkers, hikers, cyclists, photographers and families and is an idyllic escape from the hustle and bustle of London.

The Park is a bit of a trek from where I live in London and as such is not a park I visit on a regular basis.  But I do try to get there at least once a year to enjoy the palette of warm autumn colours that provides an atmospheric backdrop to the annual deer rut.  During this mating season the males literally lock horns, a sight I enjoyed for the first time last year.  Whilst I didn’t see any repeat performances during my visit this morning, I still enjoyed capturing some images of these beautiful animals.
