Warning - Stay back

By maroondah
This one was taken at the popular Bushy Park. I was a good distance away with the long lens but a young family were between me and the stag. It seemed not to like them being close so made the usual sounds. I felt obliged to move further back and did so. Strangely the young family stayed where they were with the two small children throwing conkers in the direction of the stag. I never cease to be amazed at the risks people take. Nothing happened thank goodness. Have a good weekend everyone.

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and Iím not sure about the universe!" _ accredited to Einstein and your story attests to the truth of this.

Superb shot, I cannot fault it.
