The final images in this series on deer, these shots are of a magnificent red deer stag taken during this years rut at Ashton Court Estate in Bristol. I've uploaded a few previous shots of this battle hardened old warrior before, he is the biggest and most dominant stag in the grounds and has the largest harem by far.
