Lyme Park Stag

By jove
I caught this Male Stag at Lyme Park, he was on his own well away from the herd.
The wife and I followed him a short distance and appeared from behind a tree, as you can see from his expression and body language he was not very impressed at seeing us!!!
We only stayed a few minutes as we didnt want to upset him anymore (probally my face more than anything else).
Thanks to all who voted on my previous upload.
Comments are very welcome be they good or bad.
Best Wishes.
Oh, by the way I was playing with my new lens, it's a Sigma 70-300mm, lovely it is.

A well caught action shot and glad you survived to upload it! I have a similar shot of a female elephant in Pilanesberg National Park getting rather annoyed at the truck load of tourists taking photos.

Excellent work.
