The annual rut may be over but boys will be boys and these two are still more than willing to mix it up.
Days when snowstorms are ending or right after are some of my favorites for photographing wildlife. Certainly the snow provides for cool surroundings but more so, the critters just seem to relish the colder, wetter weather. This past Saturday that was the case for sure.
Light snow was falling and lighting wasn’t the best but the deer were extraordinarily active. These two pushed and shoved each other for a half hour and while the action wasn’t as intense as during the height of mating season, it was certainly fun to watch.
I do always wonder how they manage to escape without poking an eye out though! 😉
