"The Cycle Continues"

Mule Deer  -  Rocky Mountain Arsenal NWR, Colorado

I made this image last November during the rut. This buck was the biggest one I've seen in a long time. 
His entire focus was on the does in the area, making it easy for me to photograph him. Lori and I spent most of the day working bucks in the area near the old visitor center. As we were getting ready to leave, we decided to head south on Havana Street. It was near 58th Avenue, where we found these two, along with a dozen or so other does and bucks. We stayed there and worked them until sunset.

An Old Horse & A Young Horse

Me & A Member of the Gila Herd   -  Sunka Wakan
Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation, South Dakota

Lori and I returned from South Dakota this past weekend, where we led our Wild Horses in the Snow photo adventure. In spite of the fact that there was practically no snow, we had a great time. It was certainly warmer this year than during our same workshop last year . . . 60-degrees warmer, to be exact.

One of things that is so special during this adventure, not unlike many of the workshops we conduct, is the connection and interaction we experience with our subjects. I've talked about it. I've written about it. However, you'll never really know what it's like until you experience it yourself.
