    Great shot Mike. How do you get all your subjects to pose for you.. You have a fantastic eye. Keep it going. Bobby.

    Thank you Bobby, The secret is perseverence we go out to the National trust parks most sundays to walk the dogs and blow away the cobwebs. Hundreds of pictures get deleted to get one keeper, and still you keep trying to get on record the one good shot. I wish I could take photos like some of the birds that have been posted recently, maybe one day....Mike.

    Another great image Mike. Wouldn't want to get on the wrong end of those antlers.

    Thanks Phil, they are fearsome weapons I watched him in the rut previous year there was only one half hearted attempt to challenge him that I witnessed. His days are probably numbered with park herds new blood has to come in regularly to refrsh gene pool.

    Thankyou plw1053, not so brave heavy crop to give size, if I remember I was probably, 50 metres away, these are park deer and used to people....Mike.
