"River Bottom Birds And A Deer...."



Here's a few waterfowl and my requisite deer. All captured not far from home along the river bottoms. D300, 300/4 with and w/o 14TC.

The landing mallards are great. I also like the deer in the snow (perhaps a bit better in landscape orientation?)

Number six is a real gem, followed closely by number five. I also like the deer in the snow.

Thank you, Scotty! it wasn't too cold when I snapped the deer image-about 25 degrees F with a to-the-ground overcast. But, it was -9 F when I took the waterfowl images. I photographed those at a warm water discharge area on the Minnesota river.

Thanks, Emory! Lots of ducks equals lots of opportunities which means lots of mistakes and a few good ones!

I was going to say what Jim said, so I'll just repeat it. Love the deer in the snow. The body posture, snow on the fur, mature trees, everything.

Thanks, Don! Interestingly, despite fairly regular snowfalls I haven't gotten out in one until that day. We're in for 2 more storms this weekend so perhaps I'll get more images like that with antlered deer.

Thanks, Dave! It was fun watching that immature trumpeter trying to dislodge the down from it's beak-it was frozen in place!
