The red deer, majestic monarch of the glen, is Britain's largest land mammal and undisputed king of woodlands and glens. Common across the Scottish Highlands and resident elsewhere, the animal is emblematic of our wild country and a beloved icon. Yet to some, red deer are seen as little more than pests.
Born into a family of deer stalkers, Neil McIntyre has been fascinated by red deer all his life. They have been central to his career as a wildlife photographer and, in this stunning collection of photographs, he invites you to know and respect them as he does.
Neil McIntyre is a wildlife photographer who lives and works in the Cairngorms National Park. He runs wildlife photography tours and image library, focusing on iconic species and locations throughout Scotland. His work is widely published and has been used in BBC Wildlife magazine and national newspapers.
