Richmond upon Thames: the view from London's "Arcadia" along the River Thames in Southwest London.
......... Really? You don't look a day over 8.
Today is my birthday! I snapped these two handsome chaps (7-8 year olds by my estimate counting the points on their antlers) a couple of days ago.
My good wishes to all of you out there.

Nice shot - the long grass helps accentuate the DOF
Wow. I wish. Are these the King's own? Or I guess the Queen's own property? What a beautiful photograph. What a luck duck you are to be there to snap the picture.ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Chuckeroon, happy 64 years today.
Me and Patty

Happy birthday, dear Chuck. May you have had a very nice day today and all teh best for the coming months.ReplyDelete
Great photo and new design, I see. Very nice!
I thought you were younger.ReplyDelete
Maybe 50ish - although I think I recall you saying you had been born during WWII, so that doesn't really follow, does it?
Do you have anything profound to share about experiencing 63? I wonder what you will learn in 64?
I hope it is an interesting and fulfilling year.
So, do these deer just wander around common land? Do they attack people with those antlers?
I'm in late, I'm sorry. It's 1:30am here and at the moment you probably are resting, 'cause tired, 'cause old..... Ahahah HAPPY BIRTHDAY Chuck, great friend !!!ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday and many more! Lovely shot you snapped!ReplyDelete
Impressive! And happy birthday!ReplyDelete
Many happy returns! Now excuse me for asking, but I've always wanted to know and it's a little hard to see in the pictures. Is that 32 spikes on each antler, or 64 on each??ReplyDelete
@Ham...if I counted right, each one has about 7 or 8 points (total 14-16) on his antlers - I believe that means that the stag is 7-8 years old. I think I can count 8 and decided that 8x8 is 64, which made it a superb birthday joke. However, I have detected over time that you are teaser, so I'm staying guarded. That's all you will get from me. ;-)ReplyDelete
Happy Belated Birthday!ReplyDelete
You don't look a day over 63. :-)
