Deer of ‘Harts’

This majestic Deer was photographed at the British Wildlife Centre. I shot the photograph in black and white, as I felt colour would not give this magnificent animal any justice.

Hart is an archaic word for “stag”  used in medieval times.

To think all through the ages, such wonderful creatures were hunted for Sport, I find totally unimaginable.
