It's nice to see a post from you again!! I can almost hear this stag bellowing. He is not a happy camper. Great timing to catch him in the midst. He looks just wonderful surrounded by the tall dried reeds. Wonderful natural colors and fine details of his face, antlers and coat. A nice natural setting and composition.

Good to see you back.
A long time ago I've seen such a scene in real, lying in the grass. It was very cold and when he was bellowing, a lot of steam came out of his mouth. Together with the noise it was very impressive. This photo reminds me of that moment 30 years ago. Fascinating photo from a perfect POV. Technically superb.

Hi Karan. This is a nice close shot of a stag in rut. We just returned from witnessing elk going through the same ritual. The poor fellows run themselves ragged holding onto or stealing a harem. Some can lose up to 150 pounds during rut. Poor fellows. lt is really somewhat amusing to watch. The problem with the elk is that they are difficult to find during the day light hours and are very busy after sunset and just before sunrise. It makes photography tricky!

Nice to see you again here and i hope they aren't working you too much there :)
This is a very beautiful capture from you! The timing is really terrific and the composition you went for here really work with that.
The details are also outstanding and the shallow DOF is spot-on. Very well balanced exposure and great use of the natural light, too.
All-in-all: a gorgeous close-up of this impressive stag!
Bravo and TFS
