Another image from Bushy Park on Saturday morning. Comments and/or criticisms are welcome - I know I should have more head room for the stag, but I haven't, I'm afraid. It is how it was taken with no more space. Thank you again to Lillian for the use of her precious lens!
I'm still reeling from the awards and lovely comments on The Boss - special thanks are due to Pete for the EC (my first one!) and to The Other Eight for their UAs! PMs have been sent to say thank you. It was an adrenalin filled day! Smile

Another great image. Is that little Starling pointing out the giggling ladies, do you think with that pointing wing? Tongue Do love the headgear the Stag is wearing too! Big congratulations on all those so well deserved awards.

I denoised it a bit in Lightroom but didn't want to do too much as I was losing detail.
