Snowy Stag - Red Deer, Norway

Now that's a beautiful red deer stag. The antlers cover in snow during a blizzard is what interested me the most. The streaky patterns on the dark antlers covered with snow provide great contrast and interest. Antlers typically measure 71 cm in total length and weigh 1 kg , although large ones can grow to 115 cm and weigh 5 kg .Antlers are made of bone which can grow at a rate of 2.5 cm a day.
