New Wild Foal on the Reserve

Sunday evening I made a visit to the Rachel Carson Estuarine Reserve. I’d heard there was a new foal and this was my second visit to try to find and photograph it. While I failed to located it on the first visit this trip was successful. Because of the need to manage the size of the herd the opportunity to photograph foals, colts and fillies at the reserve is rare. This little foal is destined to mature into a lovely little filly and eventually a beautiful mare that I’ll have the pleasure of photographing for years to come.

    What a gorgeous foal; and the golden sunlight made for great shots of it and the mare.
