Shenandoah Buck

This is the same buck that was pictured eating and grazing with a doe a couple posts ago. It's amazing in photography how the photographer can pick out the smallest detail which then deems a photo imperfect. At first sight, I was disappointed that the blade of grass in the second shot was so close to his eye. I was taking this photo from my car but if I had been out on the ground I could have repositioned just slightly enough to eliminate it from the frame entirely but now that all is said and done, I have grown to like it there. It gives a little extra depth of field and some "character" so I'm happy with it.

  1. Greetings, Heather.

    Happen to come across your Wildlife Blog. You have some nice Images.

    I, also, like to take my Pentax K100D and shoot places that I've been and some Wildlife, if I ever can do it. The Whitetail Deer that are around this area are not easy to find. Maybe someday, I'll take a trip down into the Shenandoah Park and see what I can do.

    I was told, not long ago, that there are 2 Bald Eagles living over at a local Wildlife area that is not far from here. I just gotta go see this for myself.

    Nice meeting you & stay well.
