As part of my Advanced Method Zoology module, we undertook some imaging coursework. This involved photomacrography, photomicrography and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) work.
Merlin is a friendly whippet.
We spent a lovely summer’s day at Bradgate Park.
I went out into the field to try to catch some action shots of the Red deer and Fallow deer in Calke park, Derbyshire, as the males begin to demonstrate sexual fitness in autumn, select mates/mate and defend harems.
These shots were taken on the fly after a brief walk through the gardens to reach the café. I will be going back to take more.
We had a visit to Twycross Zoo as part of my BSc. Zoology and Film degree course.
I hope that some of these images make it clear why animals do not belong in zoos.
