Thank you for your clicks, comments & votes for which I'm most appreciative. I would epecially like to thank Kate (Irishkate) for her valued UA which I will treasure.

My image today was taken in Bushy Park last December where this exhausted stag was resting in the bracken after the annual rut. I added some vignetting but also liked to focus on the his face as he was well camouflaged amongst the bracken but couldn't escape from me. SmileSmileWink

Thanks for looking and have a great Sunday
