Wannabe like Dad!

By teocali
Almost full frame portrait (slight reduction of height from top to balance) of a young Red Deer Stag, watching from the safety of his bracken camouflage, as the big boys challenge each other for supremacy. Best viewed large for detail if you have a moment.
Settings: F/6.3 1/160sec ISO500 +0.33EV AV@500mm tripod

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my GSW upload and a special Thank You to Graham_P for his UA - so very much appreciated Smile

I think this could use a little more at the bottom but the detail is superb and your depth of field is spot on.
