I shot this several weeks ago after a morning out photographing. I had seen this buck around, but had been unable to get in a good position to get a shot of him. As I was leaving the park I saw a doe standing in a grove of trees. As I was taking some pictures of her I saw something move out of the corner of my eye. I got this shot just before he disappeared into the woods. I have not seen this buck since.
Wildlife photography often involves as much skill as luck and time. I have spent countless hours in the woods and walked away with nothing. Then there are times when you least expect it that you get the opportunity to get some great shots. A good lesson is to always be prepared and be persistent.
