A Red Deer Stag performing Flehman, where he sniffs the air for the scent of females ready to mate.
Many thanks to all who left CC's on yesterdays upload with the breath and to Justin C for the great advice on getting lower. Wish I had now, but always difficult incase you have to move quickly for a hasty retreat. But good advice to take out in the field next time.
