I'm assuming that's a Red Deer, in which case it's an impressive sound too. I've heard it often on the Mardale fells in Autumn, drifting up through mist out of Riggindale. Haunting, majestic.

Excellent image.

WOW. One of the most unique and brilliant stag shots I've seen!! Not just great timing but fabulous angle, composition and crop too, Alex.

Looks like he missed a stag night and is going, "Nnnoooooo...!"

Few images are strong enough to break the rules of composition, but this is surely one of them.
Your Stag deserves to be where he is, right bang in the middle; centre stage..!
