Stag Fights

When you're in the jungle, it's all about being in the right place at the right time. Nobody can guarantee you great sightings, but if you're patient enough, you will be rewarded.

Usually we just pass by herds and herds of deers since they're found in plenty everywhere. But there are these moments when a common sighting turns into a special one. Though, stag fights are an integral part of deer behavior as a show of strength and supremacy it isn't what you see everyday.

We were actually watching a Changeable Hawk Eagle when these two males suddenly took up the fight. Since we were already waiting over there, the herd was at ease and the fighting display continued for around 2-3 minutes. I just managed to squeeze them into the frame and freeze the motion.
