Stag ahead! (Explored 040314)
Yes I was out of the car and not a fence between me and this wonderful stag. I wouldn't be doing this in the rutting season tho - too risky. To be honest, I'm not even sure I should have been approaching him at this time of year either, but such an opportunity! And a bit strange considering how scared I am of cows! I couldn't tell you how close I was, not as close as I was to the hinds, but the images are uncropped so that maybe gives an idea. Raining at the time as you can see, which was a little bit of a pity.
