Jasper, 2003. I spotted him from my car in a meadow. I followed him in the forest from a distance so he was very comfortable with me.
At some point he got tired and he simply sat down to rest. Amazing isn’t it?
If you look closely on the left of its antlers you’ll see grass, he had a patch of grass stuck over there, I think he used its antlers to look for roots on the ground.
I got pretty close of him, still making sure I’m not disturbing him. As you can see he was checking me out but in a very relaxed way, he was not aggressive at all.
