Showed a similar image but this has the modesty protected a bit better.  Mist and fog coming down hard so challenging to process.

D500 & Sigma S OS 150-600 at 200.  1/100 F8 at Iso 1000 on a Gitzo with Wimberly head.

Please feel free to view uncompressed.  Thanks for looking and your time.

The mood and setting are beautiful. The pose is wonderful. The curves and angled lines of the body, antlers and limbs flow and complement each other so perfectly - and as you say, protect this fine stag's modesty. First Class photography and artistry rolled into one, Dave! Love it.

David, Definitely a Winner! Really like how the fog hides the trees just enough to see their outline. Was this taken in the UK?

Beautiful setting and behavior captured. The fog adds to the mood.

thank you Cindy. Can't think of anything better than a early morning tryst with my old deers, as already mentioned with Carol. Appreciate all your thoughts.
