Glen Cannich Red Stag

Near darkness ISO 3200 shot. And yes I chopped his antlers and legs! Lol, but I posted it as I still like the facial expression, the colours and shapes on his back and the surrounding fauna :-)

 

This was one of a herd of Stags. All the others took off to higher ground as I approached up the steep sided rocky mountain. I thought there must be something wrong with this one, as he just sat and watched me get nearer! Eventually when I was very close he stood up, but instead of running away, he watched me while I settled myself on a slab of rock, and then he carried on as normal munching grasses!
