Red deer stags (Cervus elaphus) fighting in the rut. If those weren't antlers, they would be locking horns. These are two young red deer stags with no prospect of reproducing in this year's rut. They are practising for the big time, with antlers intertwined. You can see which stag is the stronger – the left-hand animal has forced over the other so that one antler is sticking into the ground. When two people fight the talk is of locking horns. This is the stag equivalent, more spiky and dangerous.
