I have visited friends who are Gamekeepers spoken to countless people who will tell you "I get them regular in my garden"....Yeah right!!
But no more at last I have found a place where I can get shots of these shy and elusive creatures, I do have to thank a certain person who for now will remain anonymous as will the place in question but if they do ever get to read this post I am sure they know who they are.
The male pictured below is showing some signs of battle scars and he also has lost his two large canine teeth, something I did not notice in the time I was photographing him.
And now for the female who was more interested in the fruit I threw out!!
Thanks for looking
