Rutting Stags in Richmond by Bartek Olszewski

Photographer Bartek Olszewski shot this amazing photo of two rutting stags. He had just entered London’s Richmond Park when he found them battling.

The battle lasted only a few seconds, but Bartek came prepared. He had his camera ready and as a result, his shot made it to National Geographic’s Photo of the Day.

This is a clear example of the kind of images you can capture if you are well prepared. Have your camera in your hand and know it inside out. Especially when there is a chance of coming across such wildlife.

Pro and semi-pro cameras support custom modes. Keep them configured for various situations so you don’t have to tinker with the settings. Also be sure to use a suitable lens. Changing lenses at such a time could mean a lost opportunity. via

  1. I would love to use this image on a slide for an anatomy presentation that I teach. It would not be printed out or displayed on the internet. Would there be any chance of gaining permission to do so? Thank you
