[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Red deer (Cervus elaphus) is one of the largest members of deer, It enhabits most of Europe, parts of Asia and even north west Africa.
In Briton wild populations are confined to Scotland and some parts of northern England. However there are a great number of deer in stately parks and private land all over England.

This one was taken at the Longleat estate in Wiltshire, England on a cold February morning. About 5 stags were standing on the top of a hill at the entrance just asking to be photographed!
I stayed as long as I could with my boy nagging me to go and see the Lions!
