    I was watching these stags to pass the time waiting for the early morning cloud to pass to do some lanscape photogrpahy when two pairs of stags started jousting. The one posing for the camera was challenging me! He kept lowering his head to present his antlers. Bit worrying as he was two feet from the car. Don't think I'd have had much chance.
