A wildlife photographer said he was completely unaware that a deer had crept up behind him.
Wildlife photographer Roger Clark was taking pictures in Bushy Park in London, England, when the incident happened.
Talking about the picture that they took of a fellow wildlife photographer, Roger said that he was trying to capture some shots of the red deer during the breeding season.
We hadn’t covered the red deer breeding season this year and with rutting continuing we through we would try our luck. We spotted a man with a camera mounted on a tripod intently focused on some deer activity in the ferns in front of him unaware of the large animal behind him. Given the angle I was positioned, it looked like the stag was nuzzled up to pick a pocket from his jeans so I took a photo as it looked comical. But it was quite bizarre that a wild animal would be so close without being noticed. A few seconds later the deer backed off and with those large beautiful shiny eyes seemed to look at the photographer and say ‘your model is right behind you! Am I not good enough for you?’ The photographer never did realise the opportunity he missed and the red deer and I collectively gave up and wandered off in different directions.
The good thing is that no one was injured in the entire incident.
Roger said that after taking the pictures, the deer went on its own way.
