Great capture Frank.Good practice for them, for when the real fighting happens.
A beautiful moment!
Thanks Keith. A tentative encounter and only lasted a few seconds.Cheers Amila.
They truly are such handsome creatures Frank~
Yes they are Mary and it is a privilege to be able to get reasonably close to them.
Nice sparring capture Frank. I enjoyed the deer over on the Early Birder also. There is something about the antlered critters that I never tire of.

Thanks Coy. I often think of you when I encounter these majestic animals.Cheers Dave. I hope you enjoy what I post here and on The Early Birder.
Absolutely amazing capture! WOWZA!
Thanks Kerri. It was great to see them having some playful fun.
one of them seems to be younger
Hi smalldot. You could be right, they are difficult to age exactly.
Impressive! I'm wondering how close you were.
Hi 2sweetnsaxy. Not that close .. just a little bit of cropping!
This is a nice one! I have sometimes seen these fights get pretty ugly too...
Siddartha Joshi. These were only relative youngsters so the REAL fighting is yet to come but as you say it can be very ugly.
I hope you enjoyed your visit and I appreciate your comments.
