Finally it has started at Bushy Park this year. The stags are beginning to get agitated and grumpy now and the challenges are starting.

Many thanks to those who commented on yesterdays Heron shot, apologies but back to my favourite wildlife subject again now.

A terrific testosterone fuelled action shot of these two combatants going head to head, a real clash of the titans and heavyweight contest!

It's just a shame that a photograph is unable to convey the noise and drama of this perfectly captured image.....Top Drawer image Richard.
