New Forest Wildlife Photography

King of the Heath

I’ve taken many hundreds of images of deer in the New Forest, but this is still my favourite!

For me it encapsulates everything that is exciting about deer watching in the New Forest, the colours and textures of the heaths and woodlands and the magnificent deer themselves. None more so than this mighty stag, one of a relatively small number of truly wild Red Deer in the forest. The fact there are so few and the Forest is so large make these sightings truly special, they don’t happen every day!
