Stag At Bay
Besides the hall, lake and various events that go on in the grounds, a number of deer also call Wollaton Park their home. Here's one of the stags enjoying the pleasing shade from a tree. I was cycling through the park when I saw his antlers above the grass. So I quietly got off my bike and pulled out my camera. Fortunately I had my zoom lens on, so got snapping before he realised and came charging after me. Not exactly the Serengeti, but exciting enough for me.
