This magnificent stag - appearing out of the mist at the Stourton Estate - certainly makes a striking image.

The Estate, near Baumber, has around 100 deer, including 12 two-year-old stags and 25 yearling stags.

The photo was taken by Antony Strawson from safely outside the Estate fence, sound advice in rutting season as Stags can be aggressive as they protect their territory.
