    You know Autumn's arrived when the deer start displaying. I grabbed these shots before things start getting too feisty. The first group are Fallow Deer, The others are Red Deer, our largest land mammal.

    Beautiful pictures, what a treat to see your observations. Of course the Dragonfly is incredible!

    Our White tailed deer here on the island are not nearly so impressive.

    That brings back memories. Riding to church as a kid we would see groups of deer in the early fall. That one picture is amazing...should be framed. It looks like he is giving you the stink-eye. lol

    Wow, it looks like you were very close to these deer. Great photos! Fall is just starting here. We have had two days of cooler temperatures now. I expect to see the leaves start to turn colors soon.

    cheers,
