Caption: Red deer stag (Cervus elaphus). The red deer is Britain's largest native mammal, with males growing to heights of 1.5 metres to the shoulder. It inhabits woodland and moorland, feeding on grass, but will also eat heather and small shrubs when grass is scarce. Males live in bachelor groups of up to 100 individuals for most of the year, only leaving them during the mating season. Only males have antlers, which are shed and regrown every year. Photographed in January in Glen Garry, West Highlands, Scotland, UK.
