That is an incredible picture of an incredible creature. These species of deer are large and are very majestic. Awesome picture to capture the serenity of the life of a deer (until a predator or hunter comes into the picture).

@777joshleon Thanks! Although not forever, I spend at least half an hour watching. Since I did I was lucky enough to find out this stag was not alone: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/602...

I've always wanted to hunt....I think I've changed my mind. Unless I'm hunting for survival, I want to respect God's creations. SO BEAUTIFUL!!! I could have stood there forever just staring at it's beauty.
