The Lower Rio Grande Valley isn’t just a good place to take pictures of birds. American Alligators, plenty of White-tailed Deer and even Ocelots occur in the brushlands and subtropical habitats of the valley.
When some White-tailed Deer presented themselves for perfect photo opportunities, I took a break from the birds to get pictures of these majestic animals.
The same buck in the photo above has let me get close enough for several shots.
One of my more dramatic shots was of a buck shedding his “Velvet”.
Photos like these are the reason why I spend so much time looking for wildlife in the Valley!
