It's a great image Lillian of a youngster testing himself against the more experienced on the left. Some lovely colours and textures too.

Morning Lillian, another productive day at Bushy. The lens gives a very useful restricted dof. Nicely captured play between them, the rehearsals seem to be going well. Wink

"How do we do this? Is it right over left or left over right?"

Marvellous to see these youngsters preparing for the serious business ahead. Growing up means play becomes businessSad

The younger stag is pushing it's luck against the older more experienced fighter, but sometimes youthful strength can overcome tactics.

Quite easy to see this was only play Lillian. None of the muscle and body tension that is evident at the height of the rut. Notwithstanding that its still an excellent shot.
