Lovely images as always, Alan.

Thank you for your comment, Mark. You might have been expecting a late summer Roe deer project from me, but I decided to use my holiday for less strenuous activity, after all that cycling in June. Maybe next year things will begin returning to normal...

Yes, you're right - I have been checking your website for the summer / rut roe deer project. But I do understand the desire to do less rigorous activity at times; all that cycling with a 500 mm f/4 and DSLR would be rather exhausting! As you know, I love looking at the photos of that yearling buck you photographed a few years ago - I love to know what happened to him.

When I track him down next August, the sleepy, mild youngster will have transformed into a testosterone-addled, Alpha-male, trashing his antlers on ferns and attempting to scare off competitors with loud barking! On the other hand, he could turn out to be like the quietly-confident, placid old statesman I met at my other site in 2019 and 2020.

If there's a downside to June, the days are so long and I don't get much sleep. By the time I'd cycled 26 miles home, it would be 11.30pm. I'd find myself going to bed at 1.30am, following dinner and an hour spent looking at the images.

Yes, that's a tiring schedule, and not an easily sustainable one! Look forward to your next update on the 'little' buck.
