“This was like being in one of those National Geographic magazines. We were among the natives now.” ~Brandi Salazar
Who knows this handsome wild stallion? This handsome, stout native, is wild, band stallion Red Face!!! He had to get his two cents worth in the day Trooper came to visit Lindbo Flats in Theodore Roosevelt National Park!
He is exhibiting one of the seven levels of agonistic behavior often displayed between stallions. In this case Red Face was defending his harem from that young, bachelor – Trooper. More times than not this behavior alone is enough to send the younger ones scurrying away.
These are the very, very brief moments in time that I patiently wait for when observing wild horse behaviors and they happen quickly and not often and the heartbeat quickens, my heartbeat that is. Maintaining very respectful distances (I like at least 100 yards) with the assistance of a long lens play roles in capturing images like these of wild life exhibiting their natural behaviors, in their landscapes they call home without human interference to interrupt their daily activities.
