I photographed this handsome buck at the edge of a small wood last week. I had spotted it with a doe in a nearby hay meadow but didn't have my tripod or camouflage jacket in the car so I had gone home to fetch them.
When I got back the doe was lying down and was barely visible. I waited for half an hour before the buck reappeared.
He casually wandered off to graze the hay and then began grooming before vanishing into the wood again.
