18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Water Deer Chase

Water Deer males are very territorial and give chase to trespassers into their areas. This shot was taken on US Army Garrison Humphreys where the Water Deer congregate in one of the training areas due to limited human contact and plenty of grazing space. I was outside of this area far enough away as to not be really noticed and was able to capture this image as several males interacted while defending their turf.
