Red Deer Stag

Add Comment

Now is this Wildlife? It is certainly not a pet but it is part of a managed herd of around 400 animals - Red and Fallow.

Learned, or rather it was pointed out yesterday, that Red and Fallow do not share the same names ie a male Red is a Stag whereas it's Fallow counterpart is a Buck... i had always assumed that the terms were simply interchangeable.

Same scenario re Hind and Doe, and also for the young.

I don't know of any Red herds that aren't managed to some extent but this doesn't need the texture background adding. It's a bit ropey around the head and antlers and adds nothing in terms of atmosphere or content.

many thanks folks, always interesting to see such diverse viewpoints ie a UA and (in some eyes) a critical one within minutes - personally believe we should all feel free to give and receive critique, and it is fair to say that the time i give over to editing is a tad on the shorter side than most

Give him a pat on the head and he'll soon let you know just how wild and full of life he is !! GrinWink

I like the pose and the placement within the frame works quite well. I'm not so keen on the elevated viewpoint looking down towards the deer and would have preferred a more eye-level viewpoint. You've also got a strange dark halo around the top edge of his nose.

halo noted as above.. re viewpoint - couldn't get any lower as wall already lying in the mud for this and was worried that an attempt at new position may mean losing him entirely
