Fallow deer ♂ (Dama dama) by Henk van den Brink Via Flickr: Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen
In the area where this photo was taken life 3000 fallow deer.
There is now too little food in the area and many plant species are threatened with extinction.
The maximum number for this area is 800 deer.
For this area are that 2200 deer too much.
In the coming years they have to reduce the existing population with 2200 + the annual growth of new breed to keep the pupulation at 800 deer.
That it has come so far is another example of failed government policy and wrong “love for animals”.
For photographers, it is a land of Cockaigne. The deer don’t walk away and you can photograph them very close. They pose itself for you.
you are my joy. my hope, and my faith. you are proof of goodness in the world, your love keeps me alive.
I really wanted to keep this in my inbox but I also really need it on my blog, but Dama is the love of my life and I love her with all my being and wouldn’t trade our relationship for absolutely anything in the world.
