Deer - Gailsman At Belton

Meeting of Blogger friends - (Christopher (Gailsman) and I (imac) + our D/Ws Gail and Julie met on Monday lunch time at the Gap Inn on the A52 6 miles from Grantham, we all had the Carvery - Christopher had veggie.- Now for a man who goes out trying all the Ales under the Sun - sat and drank Lemon and Lime.


Must be fair to the ol boy tho - he was driving.

We ended up at the Lion Gates at Belton House to see if we could capture the Deer-Rutting - Deer was there - but no rutting,lol.
 The light was failing - so the pics are not as good as they could be.
Top pic is the entrance from the Lions Gate - looking down to Belton House about 1 mile away.


 In the top 2 pics - you can see the Big Daddy with his antlers, he's black in colour
These 3 were having a rest and didnt mind us taking their pics.

 Little Boy Blue(Christopher) and Gail  - Gails photographing the Deer - Christopher  photographing the trees


 Not too sure if this is the Gate Keepers House but it sure looks a neat place as the sheep like to parade around it.
We all finished up photographing the Tall trees , and julie picked up a little piece of bark for dyeing with for her material.

Finely we had to leave - as it was getting dark and Christopher wanted to go home - he even turned down some ginger cake and custard, mmmmm, you missed a real treat my friend.
Here's Chrisotpher and Gail heading home.
Thanks to Christopher and Gail for a very nice afternoon and meeting.(and for taking some stick)(no broom on the end)lol.

It's always neat to get together with other bloggers. I enjoyed your pictures of the deer, even if there was no rutting. That Gate Keepers how's looks very impressive.

It looks like you had a lot of things to photograph. Boy you would be hard pressed to find anything like that around here.

Great photos (also loving the photo of the trees....) You live in a beautiful area, Stewart...

Nice deer, but the little house is something you can make a great thing of.

Greetings,

Oh you naughty man, taking some sneaky shots again!

Enjoyed your deer series, Stewart - what a lovely place that gatekeeper's house ! Spent some time catching up on your posts - very nice house (whose is it ?) on your Snape Maltings post. And of course, your 'glow worm' ! ;-)

Enjoy your time a-----way !

Nice bunch of shots here and at Snape Malting. Sometimes the animals just want to stop and watch the people or maybe get a handout.

Deer are graceful animals, aren't they?
I've never seen so many myself...
God bless you!
