Taken this morning I liked the way the sun lit up the snorts from the stag This morning was the first time I had been over the park for a few weeks as I have been laid up after a small op The rut is in full swing and the stags are very agresive this morning I had to change my route to avoid one or two who had that look in their eye!

What a fantastic story this pic tells with that stag stepping with determination in the direction of his intended bride. And the sunlight highlighting his snort intensifies his body language.

I would agree with Diane about the sunlight highlighting the snort of the stag to heighten the sense of the rutting season. A striking set of antlers to complete the image.


My only wish for this image is that you could have filled the canvas with the stag but I understand the danger of the rutting season and getting too close to one of these creatures at this time in their lives.

Excellent shot of the stag Richard - I also like the fact that the bird sits there on the path unaware the he's part of your composition.

Terrific Richard, lucky you with the sun setting him off. I saw a photo the other day of a stag from NZ with a set of antlers that would have beaten this one by half again. Great shot,

A stag on a mission.
