Got My Eye on You

By Lillian  
Bushy Park today in the sunshine
but what a lovely start... sunrise through a great wall of fog

This is one of many stags making a noise
but they are not ready to rut yet

A group of 4 the 'boys' were bellowing and sizing each other up
thought I was in for some action
nope!! they were chatting then all laid down together for a rest!

Raw testosterone! This says wild and life, both of which often seem to be lacking in Wildlife shots. Wonderful image.

This is a lovely picture Lilian but having read some comments these Stags are Captive Animals and protected and Richmond Park is open to the public and photographers alike. The Authorities keep the number down so not to over populate the park. I am going there in a few weeks to capture the Rut .

Cracking image Lillian, I can almost smell his breath!

NB I said that this says wild and life, elements often lacking in wildlife uploads. I didn't say that it is itself a wildlife shot... Wink

Wonderful shot Lillian and you are so good at this type of photo. I'm not checking the site much at the moment but saw this and so headed off down there yesterday (we had a £5 Lidl voucher anyway!). I got a few shots of stags round the big lake near the Hampton Court car park but nothing as good as this. They were quite noisy.
