Artist's Description

The red deer rut takes place in the UK during October it is the time when these magnificent red deer stags compete to mate. There is much roaring and fighting a time of violence and competing – only the strongest stags get to mate. But ……..just occasionally you manage to see a moment of tenderness.

In this shot the hind reached forward to her lord and master and he tenderly kissed her. It was just a moment of tenderness and was all over in a few seconds before he was off in pursuit of another stag who was after one of his ladies.
