I apologize for the lack of activity this summer. It has just been one of those summers when you do not have a lot of time to get out with the camera. I am hoping to make up for it this fall.

I will post something from earlier this year to keep things going until I can get back out into the field.
Here is one from my Burrowing Owl collection. Taken in May 2014 in Cape Coral Florida.

The wild horses of Assateague get all the fame and notoriety, but many people do not know that is also and established population of wild Sika Deer on the island. Even though they are wild, they are kind of oblivious to the comings and goings of humans as this one can attest. Sika Deer. Assateague National Seashore. June 2014

The Assateague Wild Ponies.

There are 101 wild horses on Assateague Island and these ponies form bands consisting of 1 stallion and 4-6 mares. Often young stallions or lone stallions will challenge an alpha stallion for his band. It usually starts with lots of posturing and a challenge of urination and defecation. If neither horse backs down then a fight usually ensues. Fights can be quite violent with the horses kicking and biting each other until a victor prevails.

An Assateague wild pony napping on the beach. The jury is still out as to how these wild horses got on this barrier island off the coasts of Virginia and Maryland, and there are 2 theories.1. A Spanish ship sunk off shore of the island and the horses on-board swam ashore and began breeding.2. In colonial America colonists “hid” their horses on the island to escape steep livestock tariffs. After the revolution the horses were forgotten and their ancestors are what we see here today.Assateugue Wild Horse. Assateugue National Seashore, June 4, 2014
