Thanks Mark, this buck was pretty special.

Heather Mellon

Gorgeous capture, Debra. I agree with Yves about the white stripe on the neck, that's not something we often see so clearly.. and I love the eye contact. Such a beautiful animal, he stands out very nicely among the branches here.

Thank you Heather. I think because he is so upright and his chest and neck are very swollen right now the white strip almost seems stretched and does stand out a lot in these photos. Glad they he gave me some time to enjoy his beauty.

Yves Langlois

Nice one Debra. The front shot of the bigger guy is very nice too. He really look proud and ready to fight. First time I notice the big white stripe on the neck. Well done.

Debra Plett

Thanks Yves, yes he is the biggest buck I have ever photographed. He is quite puffed up in the neck and chest right now which I think makes the white patch stand out more.

Description
I was in the car when I took this picture and was not able to adjust the zoom back to bring in some more of the landscape. I decided to try and get a portrait while he was standing so still but there was a lot of twigs and brush that are slightly blurred through his chest and nose. Regardless I thought I would share a closeup of this very beautiful White-tailed buck.
