Red Deer

Last week I made a trip to Tatton Park in Cheshire to capture some Red Deer images. There was very little activity with the stags, so it looks like the warmer weather over the last week or so is delaying the start of the rut. I only managed to get to Tatton late in the day and as expected lighting conditions were not the best.

I don't often use black and white in wildlife images but it seemed to work well on some of these pictures. I will be returning to the Red Deer over the next few days.

All images were captured using the new Nikkor 200-400mm Lens which is proving to be a great addition to my equipment.

Talking of photographic equipment I have received a few e-mails and comments on the blog asking what equipment I use for my wildlife and bird photography. The truth is at this time I am revising my equipment in terms of long lenses. The Nikkor 200-400mm is the first of two major additions. The second big purchase is a 600mm F4 Nikkor which is on its way to me as I write this posting.

I intend to do a blog posting on my equipment in the next week or so, keep your eyes peeled and as ever if you have any equipment related questions please drop me a line.

Here are a few more images from this trip.


  1. Great work Steve, you've really captured the majesty of these beautiful creatures.
