Big Boy Tailing a Doe
The whitetail rut is now on here in the Texas hills. This old boy was caught out in the open, his female companion is further left and off frame of the photo, moving away from him. Note the shoulders-neck region, full and thick... a buck in rut.
I live in the western region of the Edwards Plateau, deep in the Texas Hill Country. I'm an avid outdoorsman spending a large portion of my time "out there" roaming the wide open spaces. Much of my photography is simply an extension of a very active outdoor lifestyle.
The challenges posed with closing the distance, pursuing wildlife photography, is an absolute hoot for me! The experience out there alone is everything to me. If I capture pixels along the way , it's icing on the cake.
