I got this shot of a handsome stag with antlers in velvet on our way to Applecross last night. It stood perfectly for a shot, taken handheld from the car window. In truth there was a rather ugly deer fence just behind it and I have spent most of thisd evening cloning it out. The cloning is not perfect but considering the complexity of all the wires I am pretty happy with the result, it certainly makes for a better picture, It is interesting, when you zoom in on his antlers they are covered in little flies, and there were masses of little grey streaks across the sky where flies were buzzing about in a blur, more cloning needed there to tidy that up. All that being said I like this shot, certainly then best of a red deer I have taken.
