White-tailed deer in Great Smoky Mountains National Park

While photographing whitetail rutting activity in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee, Tom Wood chanced upon one of those special moments when all the conditions were right for a great photo. "It was a cold frosty morning and two bucks were positioning for a fight," the Tennessee resident writes. "They were on a hill, which allowed for an out-of-focus background." Wood used a Cannon 50D, a 500mm lens and a tripod.
