The stag was seem wandering alone for days in Richmond Park before it dived into a lake and came out with a grassy mop resting between its antlers.
After letting out a mating call he emerged from the water to find two females waiting for him.
Unfortunately, he also attracted the attention of another stag, who he had to fight off before strolling away with the two females in tow.
The incident was witnessed by keen photographer Robert Piper, 55, who couldn't believe his eyes as the extraordinary events unfolded.
He told the Daily Mail: 'Sometimes the stags adorn themselves with bracken to impress the females - and it must somehow strike a chord.
'But the head gear can also attract other stags and on occasions will end up with a fight exactly like what happened here.
'This stag did find a female but keeping her was another matter because other stags became jealous and tried to fight him.
'But he fought them off and eventually had two deer following him around.'
