There he stood. So still, even on such a windy day. As I approached, there was no movement on his part. Only an awareness of my presence and a resolve to remain firmly at his chosen vantage point. Looking at him now, he shows no sign of timidity; head held high, he made the decision to stay. As I carefully acquired his visage on my camera, I was mindful of every step I took. Excitement mounted within me as I realized the opportunity to capture such graceful beauty with my lens.
