A male red deer is called a stag or a hart, and a female is called a hind. The red deer lives mostly in Europe, the Caucasus Mountains, Asia, Iran, parts of Western Asia, and Central Asia. It also lives in the Atlas Mountain range between Morocco and Tunisia in northwestern Africa, being the only species of deer to inhabit Africa.
Recently a breath-taking image was captured by a wildlife photographer of a stag standing behind the ferns and it was lovely how only one photographer managed to grasp its existence. This article is about a photographer who clearly missed his shot as he was turning the other way around when the stag was right behind him. This was in a busy park, West London.
Surprisingly, this moment was captured by a wildlife photographer named Roger Clarke who was in investigation of a red deer. He was ensuring that he would have better luck this time to spot one red deer at least, which in turn became a reality.
“We had spotted a man with a camera mounted on a tripod, who was intently focused on deer activity among the ferns in front of him whilst unaware of the stag right behind him.”
“Given the angle, I was positioned and it looked like a stag who was up to pickpocket from the man’s jeans and it indeed looked comical to me.” “But it was quite queer that the stag wasn’t noticed at such a close distance”
Sadly, the photographer missed out on a tremendous, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
