These incredible shots show majestic stags warming up at sunrise on a frosty morning.
In the pictures, taken at Bushy Park in London yesterday [THURS] the sunrise paints the sky in shades of pink, purple and orange – creating an amazing backdrop for the animals.
The photographer, from Teddington, said: “I love walking my dog in Bushy Park on a beautiful morning, especially if there’s been a heavy ’hoar’ frost, covering everything in magical icy glitter.
“This, combined with a spectacular fiery sunrise, gave us a stunning hour.
“The deer obviously needed to warm up and several were having play bouts just to get the blood flowing back into their frozen limbs.
“Even though it was well below freezing I had to keep snapping away and I completed my 10,000 steps before breakfast!”
