Red Deer on the high moors of Cornwall

Had a great afternoon watching and photographing truly wild red deer on the high moors here in Cornwall yesterday with acknowledged deer expert and good friend Ed Treverton.

We watched 2 good stags and were lucky enough to get some close photos of one of them in very nice light. Also saw 3 hinds and two calves so it was well worth the four hours of hiking in very difficult conditions and putting up with the aching knees this morning!
