13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Battle at Dawn

Late Summer in the UK and the deer are preparing for the Autumn rut. These 2 stags were probably just warming up before the main event in a few weeks' time but they were magnificent and mythical in the misty dawn light. This was taken at Richmond Park in London.
