Emma I wonder whether this is rather Hypericum calycinum, which is prostrate with solitary flowers. H. perforatum has flowers in cymes.

Yes, Emma I agree with you! The deer are very hard to spot in the wild, they are so beautiful! Oh and I think this photo is very interesting. The color is pretty and I never saw a plant like this.

no luck in that area. though i saw a beautiful Deer with antlers!! It was very shy and it ran away. Spotting wild life in the wild is truly an exhilarating feeling.
