Q: Why cant I post new stories? :(

A: Do you know?

In between the heavy downpours of rain last evening, I was able to observe (the the eyepiece of my 5D mkII with 100-400mm zoom) an irritated Stag fend off an irritating magpie. Not quite the same as the behaviour of African savanna antelopes and the tick feeding birds that they attract but close.

Any way I hope that you enjoy this unusual scene.
