    So, I'm out and about early hoping the rain will go and I can get some decent sunrise shots - but the rain continued and I was just about to head back to the house (which five months and 8 days after Hurricane Michael is going to get a new roof on Monday), when I see these two little bucks sparring with one another. There isn't a rut on now so I know it's just practice, but serious practice at that.

    This is a good example of how far you can push the ISO on a D500 (for photo lady) with the 200-500 ISO 6400, f/5.6, 1/500, no light, lots of rain. It's grainy but I'd rather have a grainy shot than to have to pass up this kind of opportune shot.

    If pushing the iso up high for a keeper, it has to be done as your image proves.
