The Clougheenmillcon Deer

The Clougheenmillcon Deer

I was out with members of Blarney Photography Club last night at Clougheenmillcon near Blarney. Deer have been spotted in the area but I’d only glimpsed one while driving past some months ago.

A runner approached me with a big smile asking if I’d seen the deer. It was about 300m further on down the path towards Killeens. I was tired already but decided I needed to see it with my own eyes.

Sure enough, it was calmly eating grass by the side of the path. I had my long telephoto lens but there was really no need for it as the animal was so close!

After a few minutes of eating, looking around warily and walking to find the best grass he suddenly galloped off and disappeared into the brush.

I don’t often see sheep with horns but this one in the Galtee Mountains was one of a number of similar sheep. I’m glad he was behind a fence …

Heavy rain and strong gusts of wind were the order of the day in the Gap of Dunloe when Blarney Photography Club visited last month. Made for atmospheric photos if you could keep your camera dry!

A flash in the night

Just before the Covid-19 pandemic hit Ireland properly in late February 2020 Blarney Photography Club had an evening session dedicated to flash photography. I’ve already posted a couple of the photos from that night but here are a few more from the night of February 20th, 2020, or 2020-02-20!
