Phoenix Park Deer

3rd November 2014

The weekend before last the Naas Photography Group decided to go up to the Phoenix Park in Dublin to photograph the deer. It was the end of the rutting season and it was fascinating to watch the male deer challenge each other.

The Phoenix Park is just on the edge of Dublin and at 1,750 acres it is one the largest walled parks in Europe. The fallow deer have been in the park since the 17th century.

We had a good time photographing the deer although it was hard to get good shots of them challenging each other.
