After the Battle

By jove
I caught this Fallow Deer at Dunham Massey resting away from the herd with another stag.
Both looked very tired and battle worn, they allowed me to get within around 12 feet were I then went down on my knees to stay at their level and started taking photo's.
I didnt stay more than a few moments, I didnt want to alarm them whilst they were clearly resting.
What you see is near enough straight out of the camera, all I have done is a slight crop and adjusted the light levels slightly.
I hope you like him as much as I do.
Thanks to all who voted on my previous upload.

Excellent shot Joe. Clearly shows this old chap has seen a few "ruts" in his time and is now standing back for a rather more leisurely life.
