Hunting Wildlife In A Snow Storm

Since I don't see a lot of wildlife photos taken during storms every time we have a storm I am out in the woods trying to get a keeper or two. Starting Friday night thru Monday or Tuesday we are suppose to get 18 to 24 inches of new snow so I figured the next few days will be hunting wildlife in bad weather. Sounds like fun to me.

I looked out the window and decided I need my snow boots.



Looks like I got to brush off the camera wagon so I can see.



The snow let up for a few minutes and I found a Bald Eagle



He moved but I found him again



I need to get on the other side of the tree so its time to back up and go around



I am going to keep this one



On the way back to the camera wagon I went around and got behind some thick cedars, I figured this would give me a wind break and make the trip back better.

I found a Red Tail





All in all a fun 5 hours today I hope tomorrow is as much fun.

Nice pics wacky. Rain, snow, sleet or hail doesnt stop a good photographer from getting his shot.

I guess taking photos is kind of like being a mailman:-)

Bynx thanks for looking and for the kind comment about my photos.

Roger, Those are terrific. The last three really made the trip. That Red-tail sure looks cold.
Good luck tomorrow and take care,
Steve
