Back Off

By johnjo58
Bumped into this rather grumpy but beautiful stag in the Park today. Was looking for something a little different;this is a full frame photo. HE had a harem of about 25 doe so her is doing something right

Shortly after this he walked off and took a nap (I suppose matting with 25 doe would make you a little tired). My understanding is when the stags start napping the rut is nearly over. SO this is probably my last venture out for the deer rutting.

Thanks for taking a look and all the clicks and comments on the Kingfisher photo.

As always all C&C welcome
