Highlighted in the early morning sun a magnificent whitetail buck pauses to survey his surroundings
And moments later wages a mock battle with a bush
As the days become cooler and the hours of daylight shorten the bucks feel the irresistible urges of the coming rut
Appearing satisfied in winning the battle with the bush he poses before continuing on his way in search of more herbaceous foes to conquer; preparing for the real battles to yet to come.
I'm certain that this is the same buck posted by my friend and fellow wildlife photographer Brad Myers nearly a month ago. To see the difference the month made in the buck's appearance click HERE to pop over and take a look.
my lord, he's a handsome fella...
We always enjoy your photo's Coy. On our way home from the Smoky Mts we had the SNP to our east and we promised ourselves we would get there someday soon. Keep up the excellent work.
Great captures of these proud beasts. Wonderful in the slanting light.
He is a magnificent animal.
So beautiful! That lost shot is stunning.
Beautiful deer and images!
what a stunning fellow so pretty in the morning light
Beautiful shots, Coy! Good looking buck. I love whitetail photos. Our rut will hit mid to late November. Until then, it'll be trees and bushes.
As always your blog is a real treat! It looks like that handsome fella will be in for a busy rut! Thanks for sharing your great skill with all of us.
Looks like he is made of velvet. WOW... how beautiful.
