Weekend adventure…

It was a busy weekend. Out and about for pictures and Geocaching. Took my one daughter out Geocaching and while out we came across this lone deer. We could have gotten closer but my daughter has a nasty dry cough at the moment, which let the deer hear us a long way off; was amazed it stuck around as long as it did. Was hoping for a bit more of a reaction from my daughter on her first close-up with a wild deer but I think the wildlife park has ruined her.

I could hear the little one(s) screeching inside the nest when momma showed up with a snack…

Evening Adventure…

June 7, 2013 2 comments

Thought I would get out and try my luck on some roads less traveled (by me at least) tonight. I found a few nice shots but was surprised at the lack of wildlife on these quiet roads. But considering how windy it is out; maybe they knew better and found a nice place to wait out the coming weather. I saw a few birds having some issues with the wind, nothing worse than being blown off your perch. If I keep wanting to do these outdoor kind of photo’s my next vehicle may need to be a 4X4, saw a few other paths off the road that looked interesting but was not gonna happen in my vehicle.

Should have tried a long exposure with the Old Shack, could have got the grasses all blurred as they swayed in the wind… But I was taking the picture from the middle of the road and the last thing I needed was someone coming down the lane with me and my tripod in the way.

Had a number of pictures of the deer, but they all came out worse than this one…

Got out for some photos and some older phone pics…

Headed out to a local farm that was suppose to have some heavy horse pulls happening today but once I got there the gates were closed. So with that option gone I went down to another lake park that I never have been too before to snoop around. I had heard via twitter that a dog got bitten by a rattle snake at the park so I was keeping an eye on the trail and my ears open for the sound of the rattle. No luck though, that would be a very cool photo to get, with lots of zoom of the telephoto that is… Ran across some young deer but that was about it, then I headed back to the car to get home since it was almost the end of nap time for the kids.

I ran across this bugger (get it?) the other day at work so I snapped a pic with my phone, not to bad a picture for a phone camera.

Oh Deer…

Some people may have seen these already so to them I say: “Sorry for the repeat”. For everyone else here is some quick pics from the last few days, I ran into 4 deer on the 26th so I tracked them and snapped a few photos. I originally went out to see if some birds had found the suet and birdseed feeder that the kids had made, but it only seems that a squirrel or such critter took a big bite out it instead. I was amazed at how close I was able to get to the deer, I didn’t even have to use full optical zoom on my camera.
