Deer and Antlers

After walking away from the magnificent magnolia in Bannerman Park we soon came across a new interest – the resident deer were the closest we’ve ever seen. We were both excited to see them, especially as the stag has a fine set of antlers! The stag and his hind were out in front and bringing up the rear was a fine young deer that is probably their young one, now looking much more grown-up.

  1. Wow. The antlers on the stag are incredible! I don’t think any of the White-tailed Deer that we have in our area have antlers like those. They remind me a bit of the images I have seen of elk in the western part of the US.
