Red deer (Cervus elaphus) stag in pine forest in snow blizzard, Alvie Estate, Cairngorms NP, Highlands, Scotland, UK, March. Photographer quote: "At times I couldnt see this red deer stag such was the severity of the blizzard. With horizontal snow driving through the ancient pines, I felt sorry for the deer, for myself and as the lens coated in snow for the umpteenth time, for my camera!" Did you know: Only 1% of Scotlands original forest cover remains, but with several ambitious forest restoration schemes afoot in the Cairngorms National Park, habitat will be improved for red deer as well as other forest species.
