The Javan rusa or Sunda sambar is a deer native to the islands of Indonesia and East Timor. Introduced populations exist in a wide variety of locations in the Southern Hemisphere
The rusa deer, Cervus timorensis russa, has become fully acclimatised to the subtropical conditions in La Réunion Island. Deer were introduced onto the island during the seventeenth century from Indonesia by European sailors who required fresh meat on their voyages to and from India.
After the rut, decreasing testosterone levels cause an "abscission layer" to form between the antlers and their pedicels. As the connective tissue dissolves, the bucks' antlers become loose and fall off.

All the huts on the Otter Trail were nestled in such dramatic and marvelous places. These were the huts from day 3. They had such rad rock formations just below them where you could watch the waves pounding the jagged outcroppings. .
I just posted my very last stories from the 5 day hiking adventure! For anyone who has been following along, bravo for your patience! .
Day dreaming about all the adventures still to come this year. ✨🌿

Love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination 🦓
Happy Monday everyone!
Hope you all had a good start to the week 👊👊👊.
Here's a shot from way back in August last year taken in @capepointsa. One of my favourite places to just relax and take in raw natural beauty.
As the week gets busy and stressful I hope it leads you to a place of happiness and calm.
