Wild Mustang Tender Moments in Black & White

Not surprisingly to folks that know me, I went paddling at the Rachel Carson Estuarine Reserve this morning. High-tide was early and I had hopes of finding some horses feeding on the flats… but they weren’t there. I did a bit of shore bird photography instead then headed back to my launch point. Since it was still early and the sun fairly low in the sky, I decided to beach my kayak and take a little walk to find some horses. They were exactly where I expected them to be. The young colt, born December 2010, was mouthing and nuzzling the stallion I suspect is his father. It made for some nice, intimate photos. For my tastes I thought they worked best in black & white. I hope you enjoy them.
