Recently, while at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge, I had the privilege of photographing a Whitetail Buck standing in a dry cove. The dry cove was a small, open space surrounded by dense trees and bushes, and the buck stood proudly in the center.
This is the same Buck I blogged about yesterday that was eating or drinking Duckweed (Whitetail Buck And Duckweed). It was in an area called Miner’s Cove (Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge) that is mostly dry.
I photographed this Buck from my pickup while parked on the auto tour road. I had my camera and lens resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
