I haven't seen this buck since 26 May, when he was seen off by a slightly bigger buck (Bucks fighting).
Hopefully his return means that the rut is really about to get going. I tried a couple of calls on the Buttolo and his head went up. He eventually made his way across the field to me, though with no real sense of purpose.
For those of a technical bent, these photos are taken with my new (to me) 500mm f4 Nikon. It's manual focus, which is going to take some getting used to. The lens was supported by a monopod, but I think I'm going to have to wheel out the tripod before too long.
