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.

The Colours of Autumn

The Colours of Autumn

The golden colours of Autumn are a firm favourite of every photographer. Here’s a reminder of what they look like as trees in the northern hemisphere are now showing green shoots and daffodils are flowering.
