How about a thread to show where you shoot your wildlife pictures most frequently?
This is the local wildlife sanctuary in my area which is only a 5 minute drive away...no wonder I'm there all the time. It's a nice little pond where you'll see just about anything-especially in the spring. A little quiet in the winter though.....cheers...........Don

My area is a little larger. My favorite is inside a 50 mile circle with Chama, New Mexico being the center of the circle.

TOTALLY WACKY roger

The Sacramento Nation Wildlife Refuge Complex, of course.

It's the big green rectangle in the lower left. It's about 35 miles from Chico, where I live.

One of my favorite places to go for birding is Fernhill Wetlands just outside Forest Grove in Oregon .

my favorite- at least judging by how often i go there - is Juanita Bay Park, about a mile and a half from my house. i don't have a photo of the park itself... i've been too busy taking pictures of the inhabitants! most of my bird photos are from there, as well as "the bubble". no large mammals, like Roger gets to see, but for what is basically an urban area, there are lots of smaller critters, and 114 acres of marshland, lake shore and trees... i get a lot of my photos from observation platforms built out over the water's edge at 3 locations along the shore of the inner bay. there are lots of other spots i like as well, but this one is close enough to pop over anytime, on short notice, and usually come home with something worth keeping...

Living in the woods has its advantages. This lady chose an embankment next to my driv eway to graze. I'm on a hillside in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas. Generally, I have a good selection of subjects.

Assateague Island Refuge. I took this shot a month or so ago just before I left the island. Lots of birds and wild ponies. Donna

Hey Donna - love the wild pony (and the sunset of course) and I like the pony's rider!

My favorite spot is Valley Forge Park - limited wildlife (deer, fox, the occasional hawk and owl, lots of turkey vultures) here's an old shot from last fall - deer are far away but I like it because it gives one a good feel of the park vistas.
