Red Deer

 At the base of the Torc mountains within Killarney National park, severel herds of Red Deer had come to the open grass pastures to feed and mate.The rut had come to an end and The tussle of men v boys was over . The dominant Stags were keeping the harem close waiting for the moment when the Hinds come to season.
Killarney National Park holds the only native wild Red Deer left in Ireland , with approx 700 individuals, they have no natural predators, but getting close is not easy as they have very good hearing.
