I'll be calling You...

By Lillian  
Yes, this stag had his hands full keeping his girls out of the other boy's reach..

A few other stags trying their luck, but even when the 'boss' was taking a well deserved 'nap'
he soon was up and raring to go the interlopers...and that roar was no less noisy.

Thanks everyone for commenting on yesterday's stag...
yes he was getting close and the tree I was near...thinner than meWinkWink

Enjoy and hope you did well with the storm and got away with it lightly

The focus is spot on with the background nicely out of focus and the light gives a lovely sculpting to the head. Nicely done, Lillian.
