The annual deer rut is my favourite time of the year in the UK. These majestic stags are fuelled with testosterone in order to find a mate. Unpredictable in their behaviour and very determined they will challenge any opponent.
Bushy Park is a beautiful setting with many deer and lends itself very well to atmospheric photos early in the morning. This particular morning, I was still getting into position when this stag appeared and so I had little time to compose my shot and only a very short opportunity to take just one photo. I was incredibly happy with the result, but just wish I’d had more time that morning.
