Strictly buck dancing! Playful deer pull off their best dance moves and play hide and seek
These deer would look more at home on the set of Strictly Come Dancing than in the forest as they pull off well-timed dance moves.
Standing tall on their hind legs the pair seemed to be moving in perfectly in time with each other as though ballroom music was playing.
But the rhythmic deer were actually playfully rutting – and even stopped for a quick game of hide and seek in the bushes.
Keen photographer Bartek Olszewski, 32, snapped the spectacular scene in Richmond Park, London.
Bartek, a cleaning supervisor from Southwest London, said: “I was so lucky – I saw these two rutting stags rising up high into the air.
“It only lasted a few seconds so I sank to my knees and snapped away as fast as I could.
“People then began jesting – saying they look like dancing deer.
“Wildlife is unpredictable so can surprise you at any time, I have to always be ready.
“What fascinates me most is to find deer and enjoying the natural behavior without noticing my presence.”
