ENV: Sparring Young Bucks

these two yearling to two-year-old White-tailed Deer bucks were fighting outside my window last week, and i managed to get these few minutes of sparring. i don't know how long they'd been going at it before i noticed them. two things caught my eye -- one how distracted they were by other things, it definitely is not a full on fight. secondly, and perhaps related, is that they constantly look around as though wondering why no one else is watching. pretty funny. then they seem to have enough of it all and the smaller one takes off. the larger of the two stops at the creek for a drink before striding off.
