How I Got The Shot – Texas Longhorn Calf Feeding

The Calf and her Mother were feeding around the Prairie Dog Town. I pulled into the parking lot located at the Prairie Dog Town. There is a wood rail fence between the parking area and the Prairie Dog Town. I used the rail fence to brace my camera and lens.

I was using a Fujifilm X-T3 camera with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens attached with a Fringer EF-FX Pro.
