Antelope - A nice buck - Interested in my hankie

K10D with a Sigma 50-500mm

These were taken in Central Nevada while I was looking for wild horses. A little dusting of snow the night before I found him.

Where I found him with a close up.



About 15 minutes later. I had moved to another ridge to wait for him to get closer. I tied my hankie to a bush to get his attention.

I open all my photos with Corel Photo Paint 12. I size the background photo to what I want and save it then open another photo for the close up, crop it the way I want it add a border and then paste it on the background photo.

Jay, thanks for the nice comment and for taking the time to look.

Nice shots. I enjoy your pictures, but hadn't seen any for awhile. I think you have it good.

Looks like the areas you roam are close to home and full of wildlife. I think you have the perfect set-up What do you use ? The Pentax K10D and the Sigma 50-500 mm zoom telephoto?

It also looks that you aren't afraid to take pictures during inclement weather. Do you find the K10D repels moisture pretty well ?

Your pictures are excellent.

lesmore49, thank you for commenting and for taking the time to look.

I am a very lucky person and you are right I do have it good.

Most of my photos are no farther away than 50 miles from the little town I live in Chama, New Mexico. Yes we do have a lot of wildlife in our area.

I use a Pentax K10D with a Sigma 50-500mm lens most of the time. I also have a Tamron 24-135 for my walk around lens and for background photos when there is time to get them.

So far no problems with my set up in bad weather. I figure if the animals are out in it, there is no reason for me not to be.

Nice shots Roger, reminds me of the area north of Sinclaire Wyoming where there are lots of Antelope running around.
