I was out early this morning looking for a coyote that crosses a pasture andwould be in good light. He did not show so I moved on down a little and found these whitetail deer.Sun was just begining to light things up but they meandered into the wooded area too soon.

Good series in diffulcult conditions. Looks like a couple of BIG boys in the herd.

Why does wildlife always or most always pick bad conditions for a photo to show up.

TOTALLY WACKY roger

Thanks, Roger

Not the best conditions for sure. Low light and in shade for most part, then moved farther away. Max. aperature of 5.6 to begin with,then add the habits of moving early and late...I think they do it on purpose to drive us crazy:?


And you are right. A couple of BIG boys hanging in there....at least by free ranging Texas whitetail standards. Of course those behind tall fences are a different story.:-)

Those are some nice racks! The Deer up here drop them in the winter time and then they grow back in the spring, If you took that pic yesterday I'm guessing they don't drop their antlers down there? Nice shots.:-)

Julie, thanks for the comment. I would have loved to have more natural light on the last one.

Mike, thanks for looking. The whitetails drop antlers here also, however I was actually surprised to see that many still with full antlers. Usually I have noticed they drop in late Feb./ early March and see some with just one side hanging on.

Thanks Donna. It was refreshing for me also to get some shots of some deer.
