Three Stags

We stopped the car when we saw this stag not twenty metres from the road. Although he was unusually close, he seemed unconcerned by our proximity for, after a few moments studying us, he....

....went back to feeding.

A second stag, slightly closer, didn't move away but stood watching us; and we watched him.

Some minutes passed before we noticed a third stag, rather further away. He had been hidden by a small fold in the land but when he saw us he began to move away.

His anxiety seemed to communicate itself to the other two as they all began to move away, very slowly, and with some dignity, the first stag....

....stopping for a moment to look back at us, a look of haughty disdain, before he disappeared down the hill.
