Following on from my previous post, Cooling Off, this Red Deer stag, after rooting around in the waterside vegetation, suddenly decided to show off by strutting through the water towards the far end of Heron Pond..
He finally re-emerged from the water just 30 feet from where I was standing, partially camouflaged behind a large tree trunk, and proceeded to amble slowly but purposefully in my direction. I'll admit that my heart rate skipped a few beats as he got closer and ....
... maybe just a bit too close for comfort as I could feel the air vibrate as he spoke!
Needless to say he had other matters on his mind and totally ignored me and all the other nearby watchers as he wandered away. FAB.
