Dueling Mustangs Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
Dueling Mustangs
Dueling Mustangs
Wild horses in the Pryor Mountains of South Central Montana. These are members of a "bachlor band", not really fighting, just practicing for when they have their own harems and will then have to run off the competition.

    Cool picture! It's very defined and crisp, and I love the purple flowers.

Great action shot, Gary! I agree, the color that the flowers add to the image is fantastic.

What a great shot. It has such neat contrast between the pretty delicate little flowers and the powerful horses. The added colour from the background just brings even more life to the picture. Too often you'll see pictures like this with the brown grass as a backdrop and though the horses remain beautiful and powerful, they don't pop as much as they do in this shot.

Thank you for the kind comments. This is probably the first time I have ever won anything, and to think, the horses did all the work! Thanks again.

Thanks again for the comments. These horses are of a band with special ancient genetics.For more information, please follow a link from my web page at (a Better Photo web page) to an article that was published about the horses in Montana Outdoor Magazine.

Fantastic shot, Gary. I really like your whole nature gallery. I didn't see this shot in your gallery! It is a nice addition. Keep up the great work.
