THE rain may be an unwelcome sight for humans, but this sika deer doesn’t seem to mind getting wet.

This striking picture of a soggy looking stag was captured by Echo Camera Club member Tony Furnell.

Tony captured the image at Holton Lee in Poole yesterday morning.

More than 3,000 people are now members of the Daily Echo’s Camera Club.

The club launched in February 2017 and invites readers to share their pictures of the stunning scenery, wildlife and residents that make Dorset such a wonderful place to live.

Members can share advice and enter monthly competitions for the chance to win a £50 voucher to spend with sponsor Castle Cameras.

The theme for this month’s competition is ‘detail’.

Pictures must be taken in Dorset or Hampshire as far east as Lymington.

The closing date for entry is midnight on Sunday, September 29.
