My Neck Of The Woods
10-Point Mature Whitetail Buck (2 sticker points are on back of left antler beam)
3 single exposure brackets merged and lightly tonemapped in PhotoMatix Pro
The big guy (King) taking a break on a warm Autumn morning. Prior to this he was traveling up and down the mountain ridge making pre-rut scrapes and rubs for a few hours - he wore my butt out trying to follow him around and I was glad when he decided to bed down. However I got lots of great behavioral footage and photos from this day and it was all well worth it.
I love to photograph/videotape wildlife behavior but I also like to capture them in their natural habitat as I was able to with this particular shot. For once, direct sunlight actually worked in my favor. This is basically what it looks like for the most part in their neck of the woods.
THANKS FOR VIEWING!
