I took this buck's picture in our backyard in January, 2012. Every year from about early November through mid-February the neighborhood is graced with the presence of some magnificent bucks with varying sizes of antlers and thickened necks. Locking horns in late November they vie for the females during the rut. This animal appeared to be the largest of the group that year. Living where I do I don't need to venture far to capture such photos. In fact, these guys come to me!
