"April Contest: Looking Back"


US
          

This months theme, selected by last months winner, dda53, is Looking Back. From David, “Subject must be looking back, i.e., away from its front such that is appears to be aware of a presence, possibly a threat". Non-Captive Only for this one.  

RULES:
--Post up to 7 images but only one image/post
--Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
--Previously posted images are welcome - but not previous contest winners
--When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
--Include a title in the subject line
--Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
--Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
--WARNING posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge cannot qualify as finalists, and may or may not be removed by the moderators

The top images will be selected by the previous months winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image with be added to the Wildlife Contest Winners Gallery

Rolling Hills, US
          

This hawk got tired of being harassed by a group of crows in the yard of one of our neighbors and finally turned against one of them. But he kept a close eye on the group just behind him, who were determined to save their colleague. All I had available on short notice was my wife's Coolpix S710

Thanks. The full size image is more impressive with all the tiny details...you can see the little flies buzzing around his horns.

It was a rather scary interaction. He was the most evil looking, giant buffalo in the herd and was fixated on us. And when the ranger said 'everyone be quiet, they can charge with no notice', well, it got...interesting.

I'm not good with estimating distances, but it wasn't so close as to make either me or the bear uneasy. The image is heavily cropped. The big thing was that he was eating by the road. I pulled the car off on the other side of the road and I was standing in the open door so I could shoot back towards the bear. This was a fairly young bear and he was pretty contentedly poking around and eating roots or whatever he was dining on. It was a calm situation. Had it been an old boar or a sow with cubs or a moving bear, I would have stayed in the car.

The unusual thing was that there were only a couple other vehicles in the area and no traffic when I took the shots. It was late in the day, and there was a light rain. I find the challenge of photographing wildlife in Yellowstone is not so much the wildlife but the other people.
