This striking picture of a Sika stag was captured at RSPB Arne at the weekend.

Echo Camera Club member Paul Dimarco took the picture at the Purbeck nature reserve early on Sunday morning.

Since launching almost two years ago, the Daily Echo's Camera Club now has almost 2,500 members.

The group gives people across Dorset and the New Forest the chance to share their pictures of wildlife and beauty spots that make the area such a wonderful to live.

People can also share tips with fellow photographers and get advice from experts.

Each month, members are invited to take part in a competition for the chance to win £50 in Castle Cameras vouchers with a different theme each month.
