The Laird of the glen

The Laird of the glen


It's been a while!

 

While staying in glencoe a couple of years back, this handsome young fella was grazing outside the clachaig inn. He tolerated me getting to within a meter or so while on my belly. He eventually expressed his annoyance with a fake charge and foot stamping, I pooped my pants and beat a hasty retreat.

The things photographers do to take some great pictures....
I think it saved your life, being on the ground, WHO is the BOSS here....
Love the light and the eye.
Welcome back.
Nice of you to drop in with a cracking picture Mal.
Haha. When they start the foot stamping it's time to go. Smashing shot
great stuff
You're still kicking are ya, Mal?
Lovely work on the stag.
Very good Mal, about time you showed up again.
This is amazing! I was certain it was stuffed til I read your text! I live in a rural area of Arizona - and know of people who've been put in the hospital by deer! So, good on ya for being so brave!

What a strange coincidence Mal. I was just thinking about you a few days ago and thought that shame we don't see your stuff anymore ... In fact I, in a mad moment as I have moved house, deleted your email address as I was revising my email contacts as I have changed my email team. Maybe you will send me your email again.
Good to see you back and I hope you'll be posting on some sort of regular basis

I see it took a deer to bring you back to shutter, Mal.
So happy to see you here again, even though with a two year old shot. smile

It has been a while - indeed. What a great picture of the pooper inducer. I bet the other drinkers sent you to change, before allowing you back in.
How wonderful to have you back. Mal, especially all cleaned up. smile What a surprise! Hope to see more of you as time goes by.
