The Boss by KeldBach The Boss by KeldBach
A proud Red Deer stag (Cervus elaphus) captured at the Jægersborg Dyrehave, a wildlife reserve north of Copenhagen. From Wiki en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Deer

The Red Deer (Cervus elaphus) is one of the largest deer species. The Red Deer inhabits most of Europe, the Caucasus Mountains region, Asia Minor and parts of western and central Asia. It also inhabits the Atlas Mountains region between Morocco and Tunisia in northwestern Africa, being the only species of deer to inhabit Africa. Red Deer have been introduced to other areas including Australia, New Zealand and Argentina. In many parts of the world the meat (venison) from Red Deer is used as a food source.

Thanks very much, Dennis. A TV spot yesterday showed that hundreds of photographers from all over Europe have flocked to this place with their long 1000mm telephoto lenses, hoping to get a shot of the deer when either mating or fighting. I preferred to get as close as I could get with my 300mm and am quite happy with the result :)

Just some grass. He uses his antlers to dig out food from the ground, among other things :D
