You can feel the atmosphere in this shot. It's full of the earthy smells that attract the males.

This pacing next to the other stag is very typical behaviour Lillian. Antlers engaging follows very quickly.

A superb image Lillian. You have captured those moments perfectly just
before the action started and boy did they clash antlers more than once.
Brings back memories of a fantastic day at Bushy.
Plenty more images to come too.

“Could of done with more space on left”

Sadly those magnificent creatures haven’t read The Photo Mafia’s rules and they refuse to pose according to them, so e have to content ourselves with superb shots like this.
