Not Up To The Job

While watching a group of deer on a recent frosty morning this doe, that must have been almost ready to breed, entered the field.  A button buck immediately jumped up and began chasing her...


I don't think the button buck realized that another, much larger, buck already was pursuing the doe...


The big seven point came rushing from the bushes...



I last saw them as the big buck was quickly gaining on the button buck and doe as they raced out of sight...


Another interesting morning observing deer behavior.

  3. Cath & Lindsjo,
    Thanks for your comments. It would be wonderful to have moose near by to photograph. Perhaps another trip to Yellowstone soon? If you use the search function in my blog you can find moose photos from a few years ago.
    Regards-Steve
