[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Stag is classed as a Royal as he has more than 12 points on his antlers.

When a young stag starts to get his antlers he is known as a knobber and then the antlers become small spikes (a pricket)

When he is two years old he starts to grow branched antlers and more points grow each year

Eventually when they get 12 points they are known as a Royal.

The most points recorded was 30

On rare occasions a stag doesn’t grow antlers at all and is know as a hummel

Hi Karan,
A really great capture of this proud animal !! Very good POV.
I also like the colors and DOF. The note is how I like them: to the point.

Hello Karan, another lovely study of the deer.Your note is very informative.
He looks as if he is listening for something.
The light was just right for showing the antlers and his fine head.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hola amiga,
sensacional trabajo,
hermosos tonos y agradable iluminación...
me gusta tu bella foto.

A very regal looking animal indeed. Warm colours and sharp details again.
Thansk for sharing

Bonsoir Karan,
He makes party of these animals majestueus like the lion, the eagle.
You knew to reproduce that by your completely superb photography so much by the luminosity, the choice of his posture, the details and also by his scenery environments. Cheer!
