Shooting the rut isn't always serious business. I was quick to click the shutter when this buck peered out from behind a tree. Did he think that he was hid? Or was he practicing for the coming deer season?
When a buck began closing in on the doe he was chasing I focused the camera on her to capture the interaction between the animals. I had to chuckle when his antlers lined up with her head, nearly looking as if she was wearing the headgear in reverse.
And when a grazing fawn found a leaf firmly attached to its nose it tossed its head violently. I was too late focusing on the fawn to capture its frantic action in its failed attempt to dislodge the leaf, however I was able to make this capture moments before she dropped her head and wiped the leaf away with her hoof.
