At about eight o'clock in the morning, during the annual deer rut, we saw this stag chase off a rival leaving behind this golden sunlit scene. Thinking he’d eventually return to his harem, we waited under the canopy until he walked back into the path of sunlight, then he roared and I took his picture. Taken at Richmond Park, Surrey, England.
