Stalking Free Ranging Wildlife with a FZ30

What I try and do is get a background photo of where I found the wildlife and then another close up when I have stalked in close enough. Free ranging wildlife is what I do since there are no zoos any where near where I live.

Instead of stalking closer I sat down in a bush and waited.



Found them with my binoculars in the trees. Very crunch snow so I had to go around the little valley so I could stay in the trees.



I found him down by the lake. Easy photo I stayed in the car.



Another find down at the lake. This time I stalked in closer using the tree cover on the left of the photo.

Beautiful country Roger, I would sure like to see that wildlife but I am sure my toes and fingers would freeze off. Great shots.

Good afternoon tcook. Thanks for looking and commenting. The weather yesterday was pretty nice blue skies sunshine and about 28 degrees. Now this morning was a different story. -8 degrees,fog and a breeze. I started a stalk then went back to the car for some more clothes this morning.

Very nice wildlife pictures as usual Roger. As tcook said, beautiful country. I think is kind of ironic to have snow so far south and not a flake here in Montreal yet. It looks like its going to be a "green" Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas.
