Fallow Deer Buck
Description:

A Fallow Deer Buck (male). This photo was taken during the rutting season on Saturday 16 October 2010. A that time of year, the bucks fight for the right to mate with a group of does (females) with rival bucks. Bucks occasionally test the scent of each doe in order to find out whether or not they are in season. Grunting, parallel walking and clashes of antlers occur during the rutting season.
