One deer just to show I do see other things besides birds, and one bird just because he posed so nice.

I thought about rule of thirds on the deer. Maybe his ear is at the intersection point for top third. That rule does not work well for some subjects I guess.


Duck


The deer is barely cropped and was a flash shot in gloom. The duck was bright sun and a tele converter. And that wave on his back was there with binoculars also. Strange feather bunching I guess. Rest of him came out sharp looking.

Comments and such welcome. Otherwise, just enjoy.
Steve

Both photos are nice, Steve. The duck is my favorite, but the deer is running ahead of second.

Thanks Pete and Jerry. I suppose if I practiced on deer more I could do better. Just looking at this shot I think if I desaturated or darkened the background a bit it would improve the shot. Maybe next time.

Love the duck.....obviously a trendy duck as it appears to be doing pilates. The deer is also nice. No problem with the rule of thirds on it. It might not be exact, but the neck runs up the left vertical more or less. The subject and framing is not static and uninteresting as it might be if it were totally centred.

Thanks for commenting Rafael and tinkerbell. And tinkerbell, you can do more then wish I'm sure. Just keep camera with you and walk in places where nature is. These are both common ordinary animals around here, but I pay attention to them and good photo ops result.

Glad you like Mr. Duck Emmanuel. He was shot at 1:07 PM so not all that late, but I shot facing North and looking down a rocky shoreline, and the sun is fairly down in the South these days.

Both are excellent shots Steve. Very sharp and exposure looks just perfect to me. That is a strange wave on the ducts wing. I wonder if it can move that group of feathers independently? It almost looks like it's shaking thoes feathers dry, kind of like a dog does except just that section of wing.
