Managed to get this stag to give me some attention.  Still not sure if looking at me, LOl as one eye was battered.  Early morning, on one very cold but golden day.

Techs.  Taken at 500 F5.6 at 400 ISO.  

Please feel free to view uncompressed.  Thank you for looking.

Dave, a very handsome portrait of this stag, notwithstanding the eye. I'm struck by the gorgeous detail in the fur and the beautiful lighting. The habitat is perfect, and I love how the rack is set off so nicely by the dark background. This is my favorite in this series. Brilliant. 8)

He may be a battered warrior, but he still has that undeniable regal air of confidence! What a handsome specimen and a beautiful image. This is definitely up there with the best of your collection, Dave. Stunning!
