1st Cantax photos Brrr...cold

My first attempt at Cantax Photos ( Canon Mark 3 & Pentax K10D )

Brrrrr minus 3 F, fog & snow flurries. As you can see from the background photos very, very poor visibility. I use my K10D for the background photos and the Mark 3 for the close ups. I think this idea is going to work.

I saw something move at the top of the ridge and had to get my spotting scope out to find it. What I found was the 5th and 6th points on a bulls antler he was laying down so it looks like I have time to get in a little closer and wait for him to move for the close up photos.







After the elk on my way back to the camera wagon I found a bald eagle and the viability was better I could see him with my binoculars. Off on another stalk.







I am not printing these to keep or sell they are for one of the outfitter sites that I take care of. He pays me to put live Free Ranging Wildlife photos on his site.

Looks like you're on your way, Roger, the combination of both cameras with that scope works wonderfully for your type of shooting. Love that eagle photo and the ungulate is a proud looking beast as well. The snow is a nice backdrop.

I probably average 300 plus days out in the woods a year. Thanks for looking and commenting.
