A wild stallion protects its family from a challenger. Spring through summer is breeding season for mustangs, prompting the younger males to confront their rivals in these dramatic stand-offs. I refer to the act as ‘rearing up’, where they take on a boxing stance, often kicking and biting their opponent. To get these shots, I lived amongst the wild Onaqui herd for a week, camping out in a dusty desert. Taken from about a mile away, I used a gimbal and my palm counteracted the shutter press.
