ISO 1000, 1/10sec, f5.6Yesterday was cool and rainy. Clearing overnight the temperatures plummeted jump-starting the whitetail rut. As day began to break bucks could be seen pursuing does; sometimes at break-neck speed!
The low light levels were perfect for panning with the racing bucks.
As the light increased I decreased ISO and increased F stop to maintain a slow shutter speed.
Bright light and fast shutter speeds allows the sharp capture of a racing buck as he attempts to catch up with the waiting doe.
It will be a few days yet until the does are ready to breed. In the meantime the eager bucks will continue searching in hopes of finding a willing mate for now is the season............The Chase is ON!
