Centre stage and what a beauty he is .. He was following his harem back into the woods and away from the public areas of Bradgate Park. I was sat watching them with a wet bum in the grass and was so fortunate he stopped in this gap to say cheerio for a second. He is one impressive stag.

Full frame and hand held in low early morning light before the sun reached us. A wonderful experience.
