thank you this was a wild mustang and I don't know what he was telling me probably get out of my territory

Behind The Lens

This photo was taken in the Pryor mountains in Wyoming we were camping and in an area known for wild mustangs. While driving on one of the mountain roads I looked in the rear view mirror and saw this guy coming down the road and it looked like he was telling us we better not get in his way. We love watching the wild mustangs in their natural habitat!
This was taken in the late afternoon as that is the best time to see the mustangs come out of hiding to graze. All natural lighting provided by the setting sun on a clear warm summer evening.
One thing I always try and do with my photography is use all natural lighting I think it gives the most realistic and natural images.
This was taken with a Canon T6s with a handheld 150-600mm lens at f6.3 1/500sec ISO 2500 set at 460mm
I really enjoy getting out in the wide open country around Montana and Wyoming and looking for wildlife on the open ranges. There is nothing more beautiful than natures creatures roaming the land free from cages and enjoying the landscapes that God has provided for them. So many people in the world have never seen anything like a wild animal free from mankind and so I try to catch any and all of them doing whatever comes natural to them. Hopefully just one of my photos will touch the life of someone and they will realize that we all must do whatever we can to preserve our wonderful wild creatures.
I do very little post processing usually only level adjustments and possibly shadows. I did switch this one to black and white for effect
In my camera bag
During this outing I had a full bag of equipment a Canon T6s a full array of lens and filters and my tripod for low light situations.
The only thing I have learned from shooting wildlife is always have a camera ready and do as many basic setting prior to going out as you will find out a lot of the time wildlife will not wait for you to get out and get set up with all the exact settings needed for a perfect shot. Keep in mind where your lighting is coming from as this can either make a great shot or it can really mess things up and you won't be able to correct blown out photos later on in post processing
