Another from a recent trip to Bushy Park.
Definately not recommended at a weekend this year, as just back from there. Hardly any deer, infact there were more photographers than deer, and I use the word 'Photographers' quite tongue in cheek as some were stupid enough to run about chasing after Stags within the bracken.
Good to meet up with alot from Epz there, just a shame for those who travellled long distances as the results have been better on other days.

Many thanks for the comments on yesterdays upload.

Crazy people who give genuine wildlife togs a bad name!........IDIOTS!

Good image here Richard and I'm sure you were patient trying to get the image....Well done!

That was once the idiots with compacts and 50mm lenses got out the chuffing way I'm guessing Tongue

A cracking shot of this magnificent beast bellowing out a warning to his rivals. Sorry to hear that some thoughtless numpties ruined your day, I hope I don't encounter anything like that if I manage to find time to get over to Ashton Court Estate in a couple of weeks timeSad

Wonderful shot Richard, glad we went yesterday, it still may be a bit early for the rutting, or as you say too many people about.

Many thanks everyone.
Still think yesterdays Stag is better for the atmosphere but must admit the straight on shots do work well with the symmetry

The one I wanted, but never got Richard Sad Must have been when the select few sloped off, leaving the novices behind Tongue
