A huge Red Deer in the New Forest. When I first spotted him he was laying down in the deep heather, but his antlers sticking up were a dead giveaway. I was able to sneak up to about 15 metres away by keeping a big pine tree between us. As soon as I stuck my head and camera out to take a pic he stood up. Well pleased with the resulting shots! :)
