As Autumn approaches, the blazing bright colors of Goldenrod are in bloom. It is this time of year that my focus turns to Whitetail Bucks. They have completed their velvet shed and are in pre-rut, which causes them to stir a bit and are a tad more visual as they move within their territory more. The best time to find them right now is at dusk, as they come out to feed. Not the best conditions for us photographers, as this shot was at 1200 ISO just to shutter a mere 1/200 second per frame, but hey...At least I finally have something to post about!
10 point Buck in Goldenrod. Notice his neck is starting to swell as his hormones are kicking in for the rut season.
