Not a technically brilliant photograph I know..
Those of us who enjoy watching the rut PLEASE BE CAREFUL!
I was put on my backside by a this chap yesterday.
I had been following him for most of the morning keeping a respectful distance when he decided to lay down for a little rest... I moved to within 80 ft of him and knelt down, he then got to his feet and charged at me, I took v1, I thought he'd stop? he didn't.. he kept coming, bellowing as he ran, I got up, started to run backwards and slipped over... he stopped 2 ft from me head down,.. v2 taken after I managed to get up and retreat.
I know some will say "what do you expect, you fool", but I consider myself very respectful of these wonderful animals, but I was reminded, they might be in the park, but they are wild animals... so please take care!
The most embarrassing thing was, I cried out like a girlie!
I met Mike, (HUMIE) after, he was disapointed he didn't catch it on camera!.. cheers Mike
