Deer photographed at Studley Royal, Yorkshire, UK, a deer park that you may walk and hopefully see Deer (Red Deer). I was very lucky on 2 days and spotted a group of Stags on each day. They are used to humans and I did not do anything to frighten them and they were happy listening to a Nikon DSLR shooting single shot and up to 5fps.
The rut is about to happen usually Sept to Nov, when the stags fight for the females.

Nice series. I photographed some of them in New Zealand a few years ago. They are beautiful animals.

Great shots. I've never seen a 3 way fight before

Nice shots. Wonder if their necks ever get tired with all that weight on their head?

Agree never seen a 3 way stag fight, at first just thought one was watching the other two fighting and then all three started fighting - quite gentle just testing each other.

Thank you for all your kind comments, this was the second attempt at photography in the Deer Park, I was about 70ft from them just wondered if they might charge me - luck was in they did not!

All Nice captures, but the last one is a perfect try-portrait.
