Piceance Bachelor Boys

April 6, 2019

I try very hard not to sneak up on horses, but these two bachelor boys were so intent on eating, that they barely noticed my approach. When they did, they were a bit startled and briefly bolted.

Look at the flexion in his body as he scrambles away.

They didn’t go far and since I didn’t make a move to close the distance between us, they became more curious about me.

I love the frosting in his mane.

It was nice to spend some time with these two and I left while they were still relatively comfortable with me.

Another sweet encounter with the wild ones. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Those two are handsome! Do you mind if I ask what lens you use?

    Travelandnature – I have several lenses and a couple of camera bodies that I use. Most often, my lens of choice is a 300mm f/2.8 with a 1.4 teleconverter. That’s not a lot of reach for many of the horse images, so sometimes, I crop them.
