Red Deer Stags

We came these couple of Red Deer Stags at Loch Muick yesterday.
Part of the Cairngorm National Park and Balmoral Estate in Royal Deeside

Beautiful.
Number 2 for me too.
Does Aldi (insert photo processor of choice) do prints onto Whiskey bottles and fudge boxes?

The long end of the 100-300
+ a slight crop to aid composition.
Not sure what that equates to in ft & inches but close enough

Many a time I have spotted movement on the hillside and it's been a Red Deer but when I look closely there's a whole herd of them.
Otherwise I would have walked right past them.
Amazing how something so big can go unnoticed

Re: Red Deer Stags

Was thinking more of you than the shot anytime I was close to one of these guys I was pretty unhappy and ready to flee.
