Photographer's Note

Taken at the same place and time as my previous photograph, this is the same red deer stag bellowing during the rutting season at the Red Deer Range at the Forestry Commission's Galloway Forest Park in Dumfriesshire.

Again, this was a dreadfully dull and wet day with the rain pouring down torrentially but that did not seem to deter this stag, fuelled as he was with testosterone! Here he makes his loud bellowing sound but the young hind in the background seemed singularly unimpressed and continued to graze quietly.
