On a recent trip to Texas I visited a favorite photography hotspot of mine and was rewarded with some excellent rutting behavior. The dominant males had abandoned their crepuscular activity in favor of actively leaving their mark on numerous overhead branches eagerly anticipating the estrous cycle of the does. This is a dangerous time in their life cycle as many hunters are in the woods hoping to fill their tags. To the good fortune of these bucks, the days’ hunter was only shooting a camera. While I grew up hunting with other weapons, I still get excited at the idea of capturing these majestic animals on digital media.
I hope you enjoy the two images I am sharing here. Until next time, good light and keep shooting. — KEVIN
