SOMEWHERE OVER A RAINBOW.

A rainy day anywhere in London is not generally something to write home about and when its blowing a howling storm its even less appealing.However this week a stroll in Richmond Park in West London armed with just a Panasonic SD700 camcorder,on a foray into time-lapse videography, proved quite a treat when I found myself perched under a tree as a heavy downpour accompanied by a howling wind and menacing clouds rolled across the area. Much to my surprise as the rain eased off for a few moments, a glorious rainbow spread across the sky forming in effect a double rainbow.Soon another deluge rolled in and yet another multicoloured manifestation spread across the sky followed by yet another deluge.In total in a matter of one hour I counted three rainbows before the dusk drew in.Not bad for an afternoon stroll but unfortunately I have yet to stumble across a pot of gold!

Richmond Park Stag Rut 2009

Kd deer rut 2009 7October is here again and Autumn is in full swing as nature pulls out one of its last ace cards before the dark days of winter descend.Yet again I find myself witness to the annual stag rut in Richmond Park Surrey near London.

The scene is set for one of the most spectacular and active periods of animal behaviour in the seasonal calender of the Park as male stags compete for control of the female deer and try to create harems with which to mate .The event provides some primeval and stunning action that has remained unchanged since time began and if you have a bit of seasonal mist can be  a very memorable experience.

Armed with an Nikkor 300mm f2.8 and a 500mm f4 on a D200 body,I followed the herd for a morning observing the behaviour as the hours passed watching for any clashes and unusual behaviour.The Stags can be quite reactionary and the slightest noise can send them charging off at a perceived threat so its wise to shoot from a distance and give them space,it surprises me no end that people are frequently letting lose dogs and children to chase them!!

It is a stunning way to spend the morning and you get a bit of exercise as well.Heres a selection of pics I took so please enjoy and maybe consider a visit yourself.

So you think you have a headache!

Check out this poor chap showing the result of several weeks of rutting in the annual rut in Richmond Park near London.The ladies don’t seem too bothered however and the hornless chap still seemed to have a vast harem.Stag like this quite often prove to be the Boss however since their potentially lethal single antler quite often ignores the Queensberry rules when it comes to fighting!

Alls fair in love and war I guess!
