Refusal to Yield

I love the determined look in his pose and it looks like he won't be giving up easily. Very good focus and detail on this young buck and his surroundings. A great shot with an interesting story Debra.

Determined he was. He didn’t even take a second to glance over at me, just focused on the doe. I don’t think he would win in a battle against the bigger buck though. Thanks very much for your comments Heather.

Great success focussing through the foreground branches. Nice colour and lighting. Appreciate the interesting story.

Thanks very much Yves. It is a very active and interesting time in the park right now.

On the edge of the bush the little buck stood firm with excitement and determination. The big buck enveloped by poplar, bur oak and spruce trees quietly stalked the doe. The doe paused, listened and then bolted...the forest was awakened. Down one antler and refusing to yield the little buck was in pursuit of the doe again.
