Kinga and Łukasz have been observing and photographing nature in the Barycz Valley for several years. This time their lens captured the deer during the mating season. They shared their unusual photos with the editorial staff of Kontakt 24.
The Barycz Valley Landscape Park is located in the Dolnośląskie and Wielkopolskie Voivodeships. It consists of nine municipalities. In one of them – Antonin – Mr. and Mrs. Kinga and Łukasz noticed deer walking on one of the meadows. They used a drone to take photos.
– We knew it was deer mating season. We drove through the valley for two weeks and listened. We found two or three places where we could spot deer. We went to one of the meadows around 3 am and waited for them to appear – said Mr Łukasz.
“He roared like a lion”
– After two hours of sleep and several hours of waiting by the glare of the rising sun, we saw the king of the forest in all its glory. A moment before that, he was roaring like a lion. A deer and a doe appeared in the field in Antonin amidst lush vegetation. They started to roar loudly and then we started taking pictures. We adjusted the flight altitude of the drone properly so as not to scare the animals away, and it worked. It was amazing – he said.
Mr. Łukasz admitted that he and his wife really liked photographing nature in the Barycz Valley. It has become their way of spending their free time. – We are looking for interesting places and we have been photographing them for four years. We live nearby and we are very happy to discover new corners of the Valley. In November, there will even be a photo album, which will be created in cooperation with the guide. We are trying to show the unusual flora and fauna of this place by seasons – he said.
Islands like a palm
– Of course, we are planning now to photograph autumn trees, and then winter landscapes. This place is truly amazing, and still not as popular as the sea or the mountains. There is the largest pond complex, unusual vegetation and rare animals. However, not everything can be observed during walks. Pictures taken with a drone sometimes allow for a more interesting perspective. This is how we could see the islands that resembled the shape of a hand – he said.
