The Rut ~ by Ginny York

These are the 2 bucks that have been coming into my yard since the Spring. (2013) This was taken at night without much light at all….so I played around with it in the photo shop. First with the contrast so I could make them visible. :)) Then with the saturation and noise. I got quite a few shots of them duking it out, but in this shot, they are meaning business. Not the most clear shot in the world, but I liked the power in it. It’s too bad the sound of the antlers crashing into each other can’t be heard here.
Taken in my yard in Amherst, Virginia, USA with a Canon Powershot SX170 IS on a 16 x’s zoom and cropped in some.

Dedicated to the Buck who gets his Doe.

    Wow, I don’t think I will ever see this in my yard, how cool!

  • I have only seen it once before years ago. Two bucks who used to come. They meant way more business than these two. I got some images…but they were way to blurry for the action going on. Thanks so much!!

    Fantastic capture, Ginny,,,, nature at its best!

  • :)) Thanks Dorothy! It can get pretty wild sometimes. These two didn’t get too wild, but they were meaning it for a little while there. Thanks for adding these two to your favs. :))

    You can really feel the power in this shot – great capture!

  • Thanks V! That’s what I was going for. They were meaning business for a little bit there. Not for too long though. You should have heard the crashing noises!
