Deer? Where?

The Hyderabad Photography Club met at the Mrugavani Deer Park on Chilkur road today. It was a early start for me. Got up at 5.30 and left for Mehdipatnam, the meeting point, at 5.55. Reached there in 15 minutes flat.

We then headed for the park, in cars. The walk began at around 7.00. We were allowed inside the park since we were accompanying the members of Birdwatchers Society of Andhra Pradesh. It was quite scary. There we were, photography enthusiasts out to have some fun, being forced to remain calm and quiet. Them birdwatchers have some patience. We managed to spot a few birds…the oohs and aahs from the birdwatchers were quite amusing. After sticking around with them for a while, we promptly got lost. And, as a result, had quite a bit of fun.

Photography-wise though, it was not a very fruitful outing. Ended up taking macro pics of plants, shrubs, leaves and stones. We felt that the birds had gone to the city for some ‘humanwatching’ and the Deers were lazying around somewhere out of bounds. The only deer that did turn up was the one below. Posed very nicely for me…must be used to being photographed.

    I WAS REALLY LUCKY IN HARESHAW LINN, BELLINGHAM, NORTHUMBERLAND, earlier this year. Managed to capture two wild deer on camera. You can see one of the photos on my article, Fabulous Falstone at:
