16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The King of Scots

This is a photo of Scottish Red Deer in its natural environment I photograph on my trip to Glencoe and Skye. When saw the deer I was surprised it's so close to the road but locals explained that they come down from the hills in winter time looking for food. Everything looked perfect, as it was just seating there lazy and calm with beautiful scenery in the background. It was like it ruled this place and wasn't affraid of anybody and anything. I bowed then in front of it to pay respect and I took this photo .
