This stag has his little harem of females and there is a young one in the foreground. They tend to stay in these small herds.The stag and one of the females. The rut takes place from late September to early November. Mature males mark out their territories by thrashing bushes and fraying tree bark with their antlers and fight off their rivals in order to gather a harem of females.I love the pose this stag was taking. Definitely showing off!It had been many years since I'd visited Arne and I was glad to have the opportunity to visit there again.
