They've just got to show off, don't they?

We came across this pair of very young bucks at Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park  last month.  They were showing off, getting a little practice in, trying to impress the ladies.  Of course, when they lifted their heads, they had the tiniest little antlers - maybe 4 points each.  They weren't impressing anyone.

Except the throngs of human admirers, watching this marvelous display. 

My only regret on this day was that my lens wasn't long enough.

Hey - don't forget to vote, okay?
