Rooting Around

By Paul_Barr
I took this shot a couple of weeks ago. This is the stag that hangs about the lay-by on the A82 at the Black Mount.

He normally scrounges food off the tourists and the snack bar, despite signs telling people not to feed him.

When I took this he was rooting abount in the snow looking for grub.

Thanks,

Paul

Thanks Graham and Jeanie.

Jeanie, yes it is. Quite small too considering the size of a stag.

Very nice, I thought I recognized him when a saw the thumbnail. He must be one of the most photograph stags in this part of the world.
