Rutting Season in Richmond Park – Photo from a Sunday Cycle
January in Richmond and the lycra-clad road racers are not the only men competing with each other in London's Royal Park. While stern-faced men on expensive carbon frames whiz around the park hidden in amongst the bracken the parks stags vie for the attention of does.
Taking a Sunday ride this afternoon I was lucky enough to get this shot of two stags rutting. Still getting to grips with my new Nikon D7000 I would prefer the shot to have the background less blurred to enhance the movement of the stags. Not what you expect to find inside the M25.
