Got lucky yesterday

I went to my meadow yesterday to try for a few fawn pics but never expected this.

Two hens fighting over a jake



It got loud, fast and furious



Even the jake got out of the way



At this point the one hen pinned the others head under its wing and held on



The jake being no dummy chose that moment to strike while standing on his tip toes. You had to seeit to beleive it it was great.

Re: Got lucky yesterday

I don't think luck has much to do with the great pics you take.
Thanks for sharing.

So which one won? Nice pics to by the way.

The problem is that I don't know what I don't know.

Re: Got lucky yesterday

T, with the quality of the shots I have seen you posting lately there is NO doubt in my mind they would be great.
Right time right place always helps and of course having your camera with you when it does.
Wish I had a buck for every time I didn't, but mines attached to me anymore.

Re: Got lucky yesterday

Great pics. never have seen hens fight, although a few have given my decoy a hard time. You could go a lifetime and never be able to duplicate these shots
