Default Out to Pasture

Was out on the trail a few days ago - inspecting and clearing trail. With just a thin snow cover, trail work was easy and soon completed. So I had time to check out a nearby pasture/forest edge for some photogenic subjects.

First here's just one view from the trail itself:

Here are the usual pasture inhabitants, looking a bit bored at the little man with the camera:

But the main reason for checking out this particular pasture is that it is attractive for some of the shier field residents. If you compare these two photos, you'll see how much they were straining their ears to find out where the camera clicking noises were coming from!

This pasture's edge is also favorite habitat for some of my feathered friends. They were very shy, but I managed to get a few shots before they ran off into the forest:

These edge habitats are always great places for wildlife activity. Hope to get back there soon for some more views.

Thanks for any comments/critique!

Must be a great job. I really like the first shot. Must be nice to have a job with all that built in photo opportunities. Which Pentax do you have?

Good work Mole.
Interesting how the deer are twitching there right ear in sync.

I was thinking the same thing GW was - the deer look like they are synchronized, like the ice skating pairs I was watching a couple of nights ago. And wild turkeys are interesting birds - the ones that hung out around where I lived in Texas weren't very bright but still fun to watch.

One more in a seemingly never ending variety of photo ops for you. Good things came in pairs for you this time (except the Turkeys, which must have heard that birds of a feather must flock together).

I'm really impressed with the wild turkeys. I've never seen so many together. Great shooting, mole.
