    Some of the deer that survived the harsh Scottish winter.

    Hi All,

    Have just got back from a week on the Black Isle with Phil and Seb.

    Went out with the camera and managed to get a few snaps! Took about 500 in total - so plenty to bore everyone with!

    Some of the deer were still quite skinny, we did see some dead ones that had not made it.

    A good trip!



    Stags at Glen Cannich



    Some more







    Had quite a long walk to get near to them!





    Saw these in a field up Strath Conon, there was some bullocks hiding in the corner as if they were scared of the Stags



    A hind in the bracken.



    A majestic stag in Strath Conon.



    A large group.



    A wild goat in Glen Farrar - yes we were up wind!



    With its Kid - no sign of the daddy!

    Hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.

    ATB

    Well done with the pictures, good dramatic shots, you must have spent a fair bit of time getting close, or is that the magic of camera trickery stuff.

    Keep them coming,
