Ready to Rut!
And by the looks of him relishing the prospect. Fine figure of a stag who is obviously in great nick for the forthcoming Rut (front and rear) which should start in a couple of weeks. In fact he's such a fine looking chap I think I'll call him "Allan".
Taken yesterday in Galloway. Went out looking for Red Squirrels and came back with some Red Deer shots - close enough.
Taken on a Canon 7D using a 300-800mm Sigma Lens (The Sigmonster) on a tripod with a Gimbal Head. My back is just about broken carrying it all.
This chap would have been about 200m away at the time of capture.
