About Steve Creek
I am an Arkansas-based Wildlife Photographer. My specialty and passion for my photography is for the wildlife found throughout Arkansas and Oklahoma. I spend many hours each week in the outdoors and travel to many different areas throughout these two states.
All of my photos are unique and bring a touch of the outdoors, in. I hope that you find my work artistically inspiring; and through my photos, it is my hope that you find the same passion and admiration for the wild as I enjoy each day throughout my nature walks. There truly are not enough hours in the day to capture all the beauty that nature and wildlife has to offer.

Wildlife Photography Tips
Category Archives: Landscape
I made this photo a couple of years ago of a Homeless person I came across while I was out photographing wildlife at one of the local parks. I thought I would share it today just to remind us to be thankful.
When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.
You know you’re in the right area when you see a large post like this that has been rubbed by the antlers of a very large Whitetail Buck.
I could see this Buck rub from one of the paved trails at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.
Whitetail Buck Facts
Bucks rub trees and shrubs with their antlers and head during the breeding season, possibly transferring scent from the forehead glands to the tree, leaving a scent other deer can detect.
Sign-post marking (scrapes and rubs) are a very obvious way that white-tailed deer communicate. Although bucks do most of the marking, does visit these locations often. To make a rub, a buck will use its antlers to strip the bark off of small diameter trees, helping to mark his territory and polish his antlers. (Wikipedia)
Photographed With My Iphone
Friday I decided to hook up my Teardrop Camper and head to the Buffalo National River for a couple of days. The fall colors were excellent and the Elk were active.
I will post Elk photos I made in the next few days.
If you have kept up with my blog for very long, you know that I see some strange things while hiking outdoors. I thought this photo would be great for a Halloween post. For the story in reference to this mask be sure to read this: Laugh or Run?
To see more posts in reference to some of the strange things I find, look at the links and the end of this post in the “Related Posts” section. Happy Halloween!
Thanks to Ricky Hobbs for making me a new hiking staff with a camera mount. I have been hiking back into the woods trying to video Whitetail Bucks chasing Does and I have been only taking my Canon Powershot SX50 HS camera. It has been difficult for me to keep this camera steady while shooting video and this hiking stick will help a lot.
