The other day, I drove over to Willacy County to look for deer to photograph. Willacy is an excellent place to take pictures of big White-tailed Deer and the other day was no exception!
I was surprised to see how many big bucks were limping or had part of their antlers broken off. Apparently, the rut takes a big toll on male deer.
After a successful morning of deer photography, I went down to the marina in Port Mansfield to photograph Brown Pelicans. These big birds are always fun and easy to photograph.
At the marina, I also saw a Willet acting like a pelican and Double-crested Cormorants that seemed to be waiting for the pelicans to go away. The cormorants had to give up their perch every time a pelican decided it liked the spot.
Over the course of the day, I also got more use out of my macro lens. The more I concentrate on macro photography, the more photos I take, and the more I enjoy it.
It’s always a fun day when you can mix macro photography with pictures of larger birds and animals.
