Another evening at the Hoge Veluwe

Filed under: September — Hennie van Heerden @ 11:13 am

For three years already, when rutting starts, I’ve been at the National Park De Hoge Veluwe but it’s never boring. Although this year I’ve been there less than previous years it still is a fantastic event to witness. This evening, there was a new stag on the first field and he had his hands .. eh well, figure of speech… full with keeping his harem around. The ladies were quite emancipated and were not very eager to ‘do as they were told’ I could fully relate..  🙂

Attached a couple of pictures I shot of this impressive stag and one of a nursing Female. Funny thing is when the mother thinks the Calf has had enough she simply steps away, often half dragging the Calf along who clearly would like another mouthfull 🙂
