Fallow Deer (Dama dama) stag running across the "15 acres" in the Phoenix Park, Dublin. There’s been a herd here since the 17th century. They live completely wild elsewhere in Ireland, and were introduced by the Normans in the 12th century.

Quite happy with this photo, thought it just side on, and the light wasn’t the best…
