A wild mustang stands atop a sand dune along the North Carolina coast. Descendants of the Colonial Spanish stock used by early explorers, wild horses have occupied to barrier islands along the NC coast for over 500 years. While most of the island are now devoid of these magnificent animals, herds can still be found at Corolla, Ocracoke, Shackleford Banks, Cedar Island and within the Rachel Carson Estuarine reserve.
For the safety of these lovely animals, as well as those visiting them, maintain a distance of at least 50 feet from the horses. All of my photographs of the wild horses are made using a telephoto lens.
