Texas Longhorn Calf Feeding

I recently posted a photo of a Wild Texas Longhorn, and today’s photo features an adorable Texas Longhorn Calf feeding. These beautiful creatures are a mainstay at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma, as I mentioned in my previous post.

To capture this shot, I found the Calf and her Mother grazing near the Prairie Dog Town. I parked my vehicle at the lot located near the fence that separates the parking area and the Prairie Dog Town. I set up my Fujifilm X-T3 camera with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens attached using a Fringer EF-FX Pro. I used the wood rail fence to stabilize my camera and lens and ensure a steady shot.

If you’re interested in learning more about these Longhorns, feel free to check out my previous post where I discuss their history and significance at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. There’s always something new to discover and appreciate in the world of wildlife photography!
