I came upon this buck as I was hiking into a Black willow forest. I will share about the Willow forest next time.
I did not notice the growing antlers until I looked at the photos on my camera.
On this photo I was moving closer to see what the buck will do. He turned to see me better. I was using some branches to partially hide and shooting with a telephoto through the branches. Just after this photo he walked off to the left.
