There are plenty of deer images taken at deer parks like Bushey and Richmond in the wildlife section. But you’re right deer parks could easily be classed as captive as the deer aren’t exactly ‘wild’.Wasn't sure if as they are in Attingham Park and that is a secured area with a fence around, they would be classified as captive ??
Can I ask what section I use for photos I took of Deer in Attingham Park Shropshire.
That’s an point. I’d assume Zoos would class their animals as ‘wild animals’ too even though they are in captivity.I think it's just a question of semantics with very blurred margins between the definitions. The Royal Parks certainly see their deer as being "wild"
but as Les says they are managed so in a sense they are both wild and and managed. Are they captive? They are certainly confined but have the theoretical ability to leave the Royal Parks, wisely they never seem to.
What they are definitely not is tame. This an issue for both novice deer photographers and members of the general public. I have been visiting Bushy Park and to a lesser extent Richmond Park since the 1970's, initially as a dog walker and then as a parent and dog walker combined, it's only in the last 20 years as a photographer.
