The battle
Lekking · Mating system · Intraspecific variation · Blackbuck : Had read about this a lot but seeing it live was a entirely a different experience. With so much happening right in front, thinking and making a image was a challenge for me. Personally would have loved this image without prosopis in the background but unfortunately its everywhere.

The dust thrown up and the tree on the left, which acts as the balancing element in the frame are the two things that really make this image work for me. Great shot.

Liked the way you have captured `behaviour, in a good composition....To me the prosopis in the background helps to define the dust & overall adds to the image....TFS....

Great shot Prasenjeet you caught action at the peak. Was it possible to get lower to pull the duelling pair out against the sky?
Thanks for sharing

Falak: Thanks a lot. Glad you liked it.
Jayesh: Never thought about this but now I agree that the dust and feel of motion will get diluted without the prosopis. Thanks for your comment.
Nirlep: Unfortunately this the lowest I could get. I wish I could have got it against the sky.
