A Sunrise Show

Milnesand, NM

This will be the second of several posts from last weekend's Lesser Prairie Chicken Festival.

Well before sunrise the males make their way out onto the "LEK" to show their manhood
and try to impress any females who are in the area. This male is actually in the
middle of a standoff with another male who is just off to the right. The male in the back
ventured close but was rapidly sent on his way. A female meandered through the area
and paid no attention to either male.
