      Poor old stag didn't enjoy the attention much, he kept waving his jaws at us. We released him a coulpe of days later when the weather was warmer as he had emerged too early.

      This one was very much alive and well - he kept waving his antlers at us so I think he wasn't happy having his pic taken.

      He is gorgeous! Bigger jaws than those that have been flying to my light recently.
