When I’m doing a photo walk, I don’t walk too quickly so as not to miss anything. That paid off this day as I came around a bend and saw this young buck. We both froze, I lifted my camera and started taking shots, he came toward me, then gradually relaxed enough to even start to graze… until a cyclist came pedaling from behind him. In a few seconds he was far enough into the meadow that I couldn’t even see his antlers.
