Bruno D'Amicis - Red Deer


Red deer stag in rut on a mountain meadow in the Abruzzi Apennines. By crawling on my belly against wind, I managed to get very close to this male unnoticed and thus obtain a portrait of him bellowing behind some dry grasses.

Location: Abruzzi, Italy

    I really like the dry grass, and the tone and colors.
    Nice deer with good lines.
