A mature 10-Point Whitetail Buck in the latter stages of velvet antler development in late Summer.
Found this Buck (and this one) on Sunday morning before the heavy rains set in. These images are soft and noisy, it was dark and very overcast in a heavily wooded area. I hope to get another opportunity with them again in better conditions, but I'm not going to bank on it as they were rather skittish about my presence. I have seen both of them before through the years but have never been able to get near them.
HDR -- 3 brackets from a single RAW (-2 | 0 | +2) merged and lightly tone mapped, cropped.
THANKS FOR VIEWING!
