October 2016. Wildlife photo project about the rut of the red deer in France
During the fall 2016, we continued our wildlife photography project dedicated to the call of the deer in France. This year, we chose the Charente-Maritime for its special and unusual lights.
2016 will remain for us an exceptional year as the morning mists were very dense and persistent. This year 2016 will also be marked by a late slab Charente-Maritime. The excessive heat of the early autumn (over 32 degrees some days) delayed the heats of red deer hinds. It is this heat that cause the deer testosterone rise and thus the slab.
Global warming is a reality that we can check every day on the field. Periods of high heat and severe drought alternate with violent and heavy rain periods. We will remembered this year 2016 with a very dry summer and a hot autumn.
The call of the deer started very late this year. It began during the last week of September. But we must recognize that these late heats have allowed the vegetation to continue to grow. The sceneries are beautiful. Ferns are very high and they are just starting to get warmer colors. These environments are perfect for decoration of our shots.
The photos taken are intended to create art photographs for our collections "shades of blacks and whites" and "lights and colors" The pictures we show are just out of our cameras. The post treatment comes from the features available on our cameras.
