Today we feature a great photo by Barry O'Carroll taken in Phoenix Park in Dublin. This park is one of the largest within a Capital city in Europe and was established back in 1662. The residence of the President of Ireland lies within these grounds. Dublin zoo is located at Phoenix park and is always a great place to visit!
Interestingly, Phoenix Park supports 50% of the mammal species native to Ireland and 40% of the bird species. Fallow deer related to those pictured here have lived here for hundreds of years.
Barry has captured a herd move across frame in this famous park. A single deer stands in the centre looking back whilst more approach! This print is available from €45. You can browse or buy Barry O'Carroll's prints here.
