Oh deer! This deer is definitely having a bad hair day, as it can be seen with antlers full of foliage.

Trotting through Bradgate Park, Leicestershire, this red deer has picked up rather a lot of foliage on the way.

But to the deer’s distress, it looks as though it’s having a bad hair day, as the foliage can be seen lying messy on top of its head.

Nigel Spencer, a 55-year-old photographer, captured the annual Autumn Red Deer Rut earlier this month.

Nigel said: “I was attracted to the way that the red deer collect bracken and grass in their antlers, and then walk around with it during this time of year.

“I also love the power that they have when they roar.”
