[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Red deer (Cervus elaphus (Red Deer) [in Turk. Kızıl Geyik]) mating occurs between late September and November, during this time, known as 'the rut', mature stags invest much time and effort into competing with other males for access to females at traditional rutting areas. Roaring contests and parallel walking allow males to 'size each other up' without violence; evenly matched stags may then escalate the contest and lock antlers, push each other and try to throw their opponent off-balance by twisting, sometimes leading to serious injuries and even death. After the rutting period, males and females go their separate ways.

I attached a WS of a old stag showing a display stating “I am here!” using his total body. But I think this magnificent stag not need for shouting/roaring, proudly, and he is showing his beautiful tongue to others :) ha ha…

TFL and have a nice Friday and weekend!

Hi Bayram

“...it's quite amazing. The more I practice, the luckier I get.” This applies to you too :-0

Congratulations on a beautiful Nature Shot!



Decisive moment captured here my friend Bayram. The tongue sticking out is hardly seen for a deer except when they are grazing. Nice capture in warm colors and pleasing details.
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.
Kind regards - Jusni

Merhaba Hocam,
Zebranın küstahlığına dil çıkarmış gibi geldi bana:)
WS'deki gerinmiş, böğürmeye hazır hali de çok heybetli.
Elinize sağlık,

Hello Bayram,
Outstanding details and excellent focus.
Fantastic sharpness and exceptional details.
It is a first class image. I love this superb animals and I don't like hunters.
For me is hard to understand how can somebody kill such a splendid deer for pleasure.

Hello Bayram,
This is a handsome prince of the forest you have captured here with your superior camera skills. Their horns are different in texture than our Elk, these look smoother. The tongue brings some lightheartedness to this excellent image. Thank you Bayram.

Bayram bey merhabalr,farklı konularla portfolyo zenginleşiyor.Güzel bir kare ,tebrikler.

Bonjour Bayram,
Ironique et très belle attitude du sujet saisi à l'instant décisif sous une belle lumière et une excellente profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Bayram,
