Foggy Sniff

This scene is January in South Texas. The whitetail rut is in full swing and this buck is "lip curling" (sniffing the wind for female doe scent), in the hope he can sniff up a hot female. Fog brings heavier air, moisture laden, allowing scent molecules to carry for greater distances. A whitetail buck will lick his nose, increasing his sense of smell, and smell the air in this fashion with his head held high.
