*I did manage to get this shot of the 8 to 10 point, Whitetail buck just after crossing the river. Nice rack on him anyways!!!Hoping tomorrow I can be a bit, well MUCH closer, and get a better shot of him.

They are creatures of habit, and this is the second time watching him cross here!
It sucks not having a good lens! LOL!! Getting closer means he may shy away!
Its also difficult having two dogs with me, but both Buddy, and Decker are learning that when I am shooting they have to stay behind me, and very still :)) We shall see what tomorrow brings!*

    Beautiful Carolyn, Love the reflection in the water. Hope you get a better shot of that little creature next time.

    Hugs,
    Prerna

  • LOL!! Me too, I will have to get much closer, and keep the dogs calm, and still :)) Buddy is proving to earn his dog food these days!
    He is very pertective of me if a stranger gets too close! The great thing about this photo shoot is finding my spot, and relaxing, and waiting :)) Not a lot of walking for me, which is good. I still weable, and walble a lot, LOL! Hopefully I will have a really cool shot to load tomorrow night :)) Hugs, :))xxx Carolyn

    Wonderful and the reflections in the water are amazing too.

  • Thank you dear Fran! The water is very still at the point of the river, and makes for beautiful reflections when the light is right!! I will be positioned in the middle of the river today, and praying to keep my camera dry, and hoping for a nice shot of this buck’s rack! He is sooo beautiful. Many does crossed here yesterday too! So hopefully to be continued :)) THANKS AGAIN!! :))xx Carolyn

    Great shot my friend.Try croping might get luckey.. To bad you don`t have my 170 to 500 mm lense….Hugs…Tom

  • THANK YOU, Tom!!! This is such a far reached zoom, any cropping would make it really it fuzzy! Sure wish ya could see that rack!! LOL!! YES IT IS TOO BAD!!!!! I saw so many wonderful scenes yesterday, try as I may, but could not capture!! At one point I watched a flock of birds of atleast 200 bathing at the river side!! Stunning sight, and the water was flying everywhere LOL!! Hoping they will be back at the same spot today, for their nightly shower after a long day :)) Sure would love to capture that moment!! Hugs my friend!!! :))xxCarolyn

    Beautiful capture Carolyn!!!!…he still adds to the picture in the distance…lovely scene….Susan

  • Thank you Susan, I sure wish his rack could be seen better :)) its huge!!!As for now I am really happy with this shot :)) I zoomed from this point and thats a bit much for my point & shoot, and not having a trypod makes all the difference in the world! LOL!! I am not so steady these days! hugs, and try to stay safe & cool today!!

    Wonderful capture, Carolyn! Love the title too!

  • Thanks Dot :)) I am hoping the buck dosen’t stop here, LOL! ….and I get a better shot this evening! Light wise I will have to sit on the same side he will be crossing from to avoid silhouette shot. So that mean butt shots! hahaha…so I may just have to figure something else out! All in all, I watched around 10 deer cross the river here yesterday :)) hoping for the same today. Hugs Carolyn
