The weather forecast promised clear skies over south east England for this morning so I couldn’t pass-up an early morning out photographing the rut again. I’ve now got a few hundred more very good images but I’m still missing a really dramatic battle of dominant stags. At times, the early light was great. Here’s an example of one of the dominant stags; nobody was arguing with him this morning.
But, apart from the hiccup with drama, the early morning was all a soft autumn day should be. I don’t do a lot of landscape but sometimes you have to give in.
The highlight of the morning was a surprise show by a, I think, young kestrel.
