oh deer…

IMG_9536As mid-summer approaches, it only really gets near-dark between midnight and 2 am and it seems hard to sleep right through the night.

Awake at 4 am one morning earlier this week, I came down to the kitchen and counted 24 red deer just behind the house, some of them only feet away from the back door. I rushed to get my camera….

Incredibly, there was already enough daylight to capture these magnificent guys with their new antlers, feasting on clover and buttercups.
