Stalking Wildlife - Deer (buck), Dove & Eagle

When I took the background photo I noticed the deer kept looking behind them. I figured there was something there so I found a bush and waited for a while. When nothing showed up I used my deer grunt call and off to the right of the deer this nice buck stepped up out of a draw into the sagebrush. Now a slow stalk for the photo.



A close up.



On the way home I went by one of our lakes and found this Bald Eagle.



One more stop a little past the eagle shot and I found this dove. This
is one of the lightest colored doves I have seen.

Great shot of the buck! Looks cold and I can almost smell the sagebrush. Is that Pinion pine growing in the back ground?

You got pretty nice detail on that Eagle for a distance shot Roger. Pretty nice on the venis...err buck also.

That dove is a Eurasian Collared Dove......a beautiful bird when you see them in good light. Pinkish tint and red eyes and almost Pigeon size. The firsttime I ever saw one was spring of last year and landed just a few feet from me. I just happened to have a FZ20handy.

Hi KEM, thanks for looking and commenting.

It was around 10 degrees early in the morning and the fog had just lifted. Yes those are Pinion Pine in the background.

Evening VP, thanks for the nice comment and for looking.

"Eurasian Collared Dove" Thanks for the information. All I knew is it looked different than the others.
