One of those moments that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand on end! this massive chap was clearly not happy with my presence on his territory and charged towards us roaring his head off as he came. The other two photographers with me at the time ran for it but I decided to stay put. I got some great action shots and because I stood my ground he stopped about 10 metres short of me.

If he hadn't it would definately have been one of those moments when a change of under-garments would have been necessary!! Taken in Bradgate park, Leicestershire, 12/10/09

I know exactly how you felt Steve I dont know if you have seen the photo on the thread 'Monkey Sika wrestling' when Rob T took an infocus shot of a Sika deer charging at me!! It did the same and stopped but with about 2" to spare!! Well done on some great photos - Take care

Nice set Steve, especially considering it was, on the whole, a pretty quiet day.
