‘High Tea’ | Gordon the Stag

September 22, 2021

I named the Stag. I was spending most of the day with him, so why not?
Waiting for the right moment after watching him and his movements for this long I knew he would eventually reach up to another branch so I just waited in a spot for the right moment and here it is!

600mm · f/6.3 · 1/160s · ISO 1250

Kelly, that’s so kind - thank you! You’re right the experience of watching this stag for quite some time was fantastic as always. It was even better learning their habits, it made the shot a little easier to get. Knowing that I didn’t disturb the stag in anyway was also a big bonus. Thanks again, Kelly 👍
