A Little Woodland Magic

How roe deer are supposed to be: under a canopy filled with evening birdsong, grazing silent amidst the twisting boughs.

  1. The lads are in velvet, yet … feeding up for the excitement to come. I love the trees in these shots … they give an impression of a tangled, wild forest, a haunt of … who knows what?

      It had the atmosphere of the old English wildwood. The sort of place where you might imagine aurochs or wisent lumbering by.

      • Or Robin and his merry men in the fastness of the greenwood. Or Madame Mim, for all that. And the arrow that goes “phutt!” in the tree next to you and looks as if it had never moved.
        BTW, speaking of aurochs, have you seen “Beasts of the Southern Wild”? They’re not aurochs, of course, rather they are more like giant wild boars, but it’s a good film, for all that.

      Certainly some elves and the other creatures of Middle Earth. I haven’t seen that movie but might check it out sometime.

    It is interesting in the first photo how the larger tree almost looks like a big green giraffe munching on leaves in a nest.

    Love that third photo where the deer is looking right at the camera and saying “Did someone call my name?”.

    You’ve captured some very peaceful scenes.

      It had such a magical feel out there that evening. Roe deer are much smaller than the North American deer species and not very herd-minded, but they can gather in small groups, like this one. I love their black noses 🙂

  4. the second photo gave me the impression of being worm and friendly with each other
