  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

He is one of the mightiest of creatures - and apparently also one of the most regal.

Other deers quickly scattered when the self-proclaimed King of Richmond Park emerged with a crown of leaves he had created from the bracken.

Photographer Mark Smith, 30, watched as the deer raked the ground in Surrey’s 2,400-acre Royal Park with his antlers - a typical show of strength.

Rutting season is underway and the males are jealously guarding their territory in the hope of attracting a mate.

The stag slowly built up his headress until it was covering his entire head.



Beautiful animal! Gorgeous pics. :)

I wonder if that's sort of like a person wearing a wig or rug to attract the opposite sex.
