This is too funny, and one of those shots that is rare! I think most animals have a sprig of dignity and to know this deer was caught sparring with a branch is too delightful for words. However, it could be he was sharpening those antlers of his. The composition works for me, but the framing seems a tad too thick. I say that because I noticed the frame before I saw the photo. I wonder if you reduce it to have the size if that would take care of that problem? Still, this is an amusing shot and I like the soft colors of the deer. I'd be tempted to add a bit more contrast just to bring him out a little more, but that's it, other than reduce the black frame. :)
