    Wildlife photography is one of my hobbies and I thought other nature lovers in the boards might enjoy some pics!

    I finally saw the beautiful infamous Wild Horses last week. Most were seen on the way to Virginia City but I saw some very close to LRN and just outside Carson City on Rte 50. Beautiful creatures! I took several rides to get these close up pics with my Canon T5i....

    They are magnificent. They look at you and then continue to graze. They don't run away from humans. These are iPhone pics.

    I've seen them in eastern Nevada also - around Ely. They are beautiful creatures.

    I have been coming since 2007 and never saw them. Maybe I thought they had an owner? Idk! Now I know how to find them...seek and you shall find;)

    Did you know The Bald Eagles have resurged over the years? There's a park near me on the Hudson River where I took these recently. Male and Female in tree, the larger is female and the smaller is male. The male is eating a fish he brought back.

    Wild horses prancing in the desert near the ranches, how beautiful. I've heard rumors that the area has some wild naked bunnies that are seen on occasion streaking through the desert, now if you could get a picture of that ;-) especially if it's the Bunny Caressa!

    We have some bald eagles that are seen from time to time near some local lakes here on the western slopes of the Sierras. They are quite a site to see in the wild. I have also see them in Alaska. Great pictures, Doc!

    Incredibly beautiful ,Doc!
    Seeing the beautiful nature shots makes me so thankful for the grander. Truly a blessing. Can't wait to share the mountain top views with you Rocker Roo.

    I think doc would have quite a picture if he could capture your natural beauty with a Lake Tahoe background from a local mountaintop!

    Funny how when I was a kid I was at times made fun of and others would call me "nature" boy! So. many years later it's nice to be appreciated. Thank you for looking!

    I USED TO HORSEBACK RIDE WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, FOR YEARS, AND I THINK HORSES ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CREATURES. YOUR PHOTOS JUST PROVED THAT POINT EVEN MORE. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL, DOC. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE MORE!

    I was like a little Steve Irwin when I was a kid. Spent a lot of time at and in the ponds and swampy areas around my home and would often come back all covered in mud lol. I loved catching frogs and snakes, or whatever else I could find. Always was endlessly fascinated by nature and wanted to be a photographer for National Geographic or some similar publication. I never really got much flak for that but I'm sure some thought I was weird...some things never change. :D Cool pics Doc, thanks for sharing.

    Deer are graceful animals too. I captured this Doe and her fawn together. These were some of my first pics that got me hooked!

    Thanks so much I'm glad you all enjoy! This is a red tail hawk I happened to see soaring and I had my camera in the car so I pulled over and got lucky.

  30. I see that sign off of 50 Doc, but I never see the horses? Maybe one of my trips I'll see'em and I'll have my camera ready!
