Filming red deer

trek out of the red deer site

We were out earlier this week filming red deer at a secret location in the Brecon Beacons.  These were very jumpy deer, but we did get to grips with them and got some reasonable shots. It took a long time to get into a decent filming position, but once it was all over we took the straightest route back to the vehicles.  When it’s sub zero that might seem like a reasonable plan, but on this occasion the route went through something approximating to 3 foot deep liquid cow shit.  I think I said in an earlier blog that a budding wildlife cameraman would enjoy this sort of thing.  I retract that a little – there are limits.
