A trip into Richmond Park today - to see if there was any deer activity - (not much but a huge herd of Fallow deer and a smaller one of Red) and to enjoy any autumn colour.
In Richmond Park there is a fenced off (no deer!) garden - the Isabella Plantation. Today the Autumn colour was evident, but it's really at its best in the spring when the azaleas and rhododendrons are in bloom.
Having entered the Isabella Plantation I walked up to the top pond where the trees were reflected in the water.

The Stepping stones, the pond and..
And just for a change (!) a few deer pictures:

Something caught the attention of these Hinds..
