Don't Mind Us.......

I took the day off work today to go and do something that has been on my bucket list for a long time. I went to Bradgate Park, Leicester to see the Deer rutting. I got up pre-dawn and arrived at the park as day broke. I asked the park ranger where I could find the stags rutting. They said 'just carry on down the path and you will come to the Paparazzi'. Sure enough, there they were in the middle of a field covered in bracken, about 10 of them, following a pair of stags. Before I knew it, the stags were on the path in front of me in hot pursuit by the Paparazzi. It all happened so fast that this was a quick shot, not well composed or with correct settings, but hey ho, it shows who I was up against and just look at the size of their lenses! I guess I really p****d them off as I would have been in their shot like they were in mine!
Fabulous shot and I love the story!

NO WAY!!! Amazing photo, Chantal! I see the photogs have their backpacks on in case they have to make a quick get-away! :)

Incredible picture. Congratulations on making the Trending Page. Well deserved.
October 18th, 2014  
Paparazzi is right! I think the shot is better for their inclusion. :)
October 18th, 2014  
Omg.... This is one of the best shots I have seen in a very long time..... Deer rutting not so much... Photog taking photos not so much.... Both together in the same shot OMG..... Bliss....

Well done and well worth the effort.

If your selling the digital images of this I would love to buy one so I can get a print done on my wall.

That's photographers look rather close I don't think I'd want to get in the way of those two when they're jumping around and banging into each other
October 18th, 2014  
Great shot.. and story...

October 18th, 2014  
Ahhh...I hope you were using a telephoto and that it really makes those fellows seem closer than they were. Those big deer can do considerable damage to humans! Nicely done on your part.
