A Spring black tail buck with horns still in velvet in pen and ink.
This is always busy time of year around here, which is the reason I haven’t posted for awhile. When Fall comes, we disappear into the mountains. It’s our time to put some miles under our boots, over the mountains and through the woods. This is when we go out to procure some fresh organic protein to get us through the year.
I photographed this buck last Spring. He was feeding under a blue oak tree. His antlers were still growing and in velvet.
