Before Thanksgiving, I spent a week photographing mule deer and whitetails in the west. Along the way, a few prairie dogs, bald eagles and geese got into the mix. Below are a few of the 5000 thousand images from the trip.
When you click on a photo, it will open in a larger, sharper format. Just click on the right edge of the shot to get the next image to appear in the slide show.
Note what seems to be a third antler in this buck’s forehead. His right antler forked at the hairline and grew laterally before shooting up as a misplaced brow tine.
These images were captured with Canon 7D and 1D Mark IV cameras with a 500 mm and 70-200 mm lens with 1.4X teleconverter. Most of the time, I was hand-holding the camera for greater versatility of movement during some fast action.
Next week, I will share some mid-November work from southern Oklahoma.
