13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest
King of the Herd
A red deer Stag stands tall at dawn, in late summer mist.
This image was taken at Richmond Park in London. Richmond is one of the Royal Parks in London and is home to a few hundred deer (Red & Fallow). These deer have been here since the 1600s - looking at scenes like these, it's quite incredible that the hustle and bustle of London City is just 30 minutes away.
