During the breeding season when males battle for mating rights, its always a dream for the photographer to click it in the deserts of Little Rann of Kutch during the Sunset, this is one such opportunity exploited. But the battle happened at around 630PM, hence the low lighting conditions on the Ass.

Canon 10D, Sigma 170-500mm lens
ISO 320, f8, 1/200 shutters..
Year 2008.

Excellent action capture of the testosterone fuelled battle, Clement! The desert setting with sunset just raises the bar even more. Well done!
