Stalking Wildlife - Mule Deer - Sun & Shadows

2nd test for my new Pentax K10D W/Tamron 24 - 135 Lens.

Equipment: Scent blocker Cameo, Doe in season spray, Deer grunt call.

I had found where deer were going thru the woods to get to a farmers field to eat. I guess this would be called stalking backwards because I hid in a bush and waited for them rather than finding them and then stalking in closer. I figured this would be a good test because the sun was going down so I would have some sunlight and also shadows.

The Deer trail with a deer going towards the field and a close up of one of the bucks that came by the bush I had crawled into.



A pretty nice buck



A pretty lady



A very curious young buck



Another pretty nice buck



I am thinking this afternoon I will un-pack the Sigma 50 - 500 and start reading about it. It is next for testing.

Cool shots! A tip... don't hesitate to use a little fill flash when you have those dark shadows. :-)

Thanks Buzzsaw for the nice words about my photos. ???Flash Fill??? I have no idea what that is but I will google it and find out.

Thanks again for the idea.

Roger, Flash fill is just a term used for using your flash to fill in the shadows of the subject matter.
