Whilst out with my friends (Mossyoak, Maiwand & Teocali) a few weeks ago Stag hunting, I had a moment of madness and got up close and personal with a Stag and a 105mm macro.
This particular Stag was obviously shattered from charging about bellowing for the females and decided the time had come to take a rest. I took the opportunity to drop down and close in slowly as I wanted to safely get close and feel the raw power of the beast. He permitted me to get close about 6 feet and capture him mid bellow; boy did he need a tic tac mint. Afterwards I backed off slowly and allowed him to rest in peace.
I chose this image to upload because of the low POV and the clarity showing the saliva string in his mouth. I realise the sky is rubbish but you canít have everything, and I prefer to show what I capture not what I can do in Photoshop; which to be honest is minimal anyway.
Well have a good look and let me know what you think.
I would add that no animals were harmed in the capturing of this image!
