Photography musings from the American Southwest -
Drama on the Guadalupe River

I've been out of touch with the whitetail lately....so today I ventured out to reconnect. I knew the old boys would more than likely have fresh velvet but I was unable to locate new baby fawns. Many of the does are extremely pregnant now and it's only a matter of days before many of them give birth to one of the cutest babies on earth.
I'm certainly looking forward to watching this seasons whitetail activities. Each year I learn something new about these animals...most of it centers around native habitat, diet and social interactions between the various family groups.
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.
