Red Deer Antler.

In the garden of Rehabcare in Bantry is an antler from a Red Deer which lies on the ground near the carpark, usually. I tried taking photos of it before, but I always had the tarmac or cars in the background. On Wednesday I dragged it away and then lifted it on top of an empty raised planter.
Went back inside and fixed the macro lens on my Lumix. I haven't yet have any opportunity to get really get used to it, so I hoped that I had enough time before Michelle would call me. I had a lot less time it seemed, and these are the only images I was able to take.
Still, I love the texture of this 7 pointer And at the tips you could see how it has worn away. So I hope you enjoy the pictures.
I hope that next time I will have a little more time.

Around me, signs of spring were popping up too.


  1. I can see what you mean about the texture. Lovely. I can't believe you have those signs of spring already. It will be a long time before I see something like that here. -19 this morning with a wind chill of -28. Not nice!

  2. Thanks, Crow. yes, it would be something you like.

    I hope you are staying warm; that is too cold for me. Think I'll stay on this side of the water..
