By AngieLatham  
Well I know this Stag is rapidly becoming the most photographed in the U.K, and appologies for the uninspired title.....but I just wanted to upload my offering from this location. I paid him well...he got my Apple and Pear afterwards which he took from my hand Smile

Thankyou for the great responce to yestrdays upload! Totally chuffed Grin

Let him try - There's a landscape, the stag is still pretty wild (you should have seen how wild he was when he went after a tourist whom he suspected of having more food than she'd given him, LOL), and General applies all photos in general... Wink
21 Mar 2008 4:28PM
He may be one of the most photographed, but he's rarely been photographed as well as this.... truly stunning work

Moi? Wink

In Angie's defence there are signs there that say they are wild creatures and not to feed them.

A cracker of a shot though.

A terrific wide angle shot that helps to place the beast in its beautiful environment. I love the way the antlers are set against the brighter element of the sky.

Thanks so much everyone! Loved reading your comments,this pic took a lot of rescueing so I'm very pleased its doing so well Smile x
Maybe you can explain to me why a Red Deer would eat a Pear or an apple? I have watched the tea bar guy feed them bananas, do these beggars eat anything stuck in their mouths.

This is not the noble beast we imagine in folk lore just a smart 21st century scrounger. Whatever happened to the monarch of the Glen?

All the very best
