Today I went to Richmond Park with my dad to photograph the deer.

The deer in the top photograph are 'Red Deer', native to Africa, they are large dark and brown with small straight horns (or no horns for females.) The deer in the bottom shot are 'Fallow Deer', native to Western Eurasia, they are small white to pale brown with spots and large antlers. Richmond have two types of deer, only Roe Deer are native to the UK - I saw a wild female a few weeks back in a field whilst I was on a train.
