Breathtaking photos and scenery — and the solitude sounds amazing! It almost appears like that one buck is posing. Who knows — he probably is!
Thanks Allen! The solitude is such a gift. I so enjoyed the peace and quiet. 🙂
Excellent – thanks!
Thanks Roger. 🙂
I was able to spend a few days this past week up on the vast and lonely Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge. It is one of my favorite places on the planet. It is the fourth largest wildlife refuge in the lower 48 at 573,504-acres. You pretty much have the place to yourself on most days.
Yes, of course, this is the definition of bliss!
Ha! It is isn’t it Cindy. 😉
It sounds like you were in the thick of the action. And some great shots to show for it.
Thank you Dragon. 🙂
These guys sure have some flashy markings, not to mention spectacular hind ends! Glad you got so lucky with the wildlife. I’m thinking that blind should be standard equipment for photographing wildlife…
Thanks Alli. I agree about their flash. It makes them such fun to photograph. 🙂
Who needs Africa when you have Sheldon? Love the image you’ve shared and I can only imagine the other captures you got during this visit.
Thank you. It is funny you mention Africa because that is how I was describing it to friends today. Like my own private little Serengeti. 🙂
Excellent photo series. I especially like the shallow depth of field on most of the pictures. Well done.
Thank you Frank. 🙂
Holy Cow! That place is nearly the size of my stomping grounds, the Big Bend National Park. How amazing it must be to just wander through a place like that. I love your photographs. Excellent. I agree with reader Bella Remy, with places like this and others, who needs Africa. So many beautiful places in our own country. Well done, Alison. 🙂
Thanks Bob! It is a wonderful place for solitude and photography. So happy you stopped in, looked and liked. 🙂
Wow! How awesome to be able to get this close to such spectacular creatures! Great photo essay–thx for sharing!
