Long Beach Peninsula Deer

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Louis Champan, Oct 18, 2005.

  1. Caught this doe in my front yard browsing the dune grass, there were two fawns with her, but didn't get them. Shot with a D70 and 70-200VR.

    It's a real beauty Louis. You must live an a really cool place to have Deer in your front yard. Sounds like my kind of place. I'm very envious. :wink:
  3. Hi, Louis

    Nice shot. I like the way the textures in the grasses set off the subject.

  4. Beautifully done!
  5. Thanks for your comments. The Long Beach Peninsula in the state of Washington is a rather remote location, lots of dune grass and a scattering of houses. So it's not uncommon for all sorts of wildlife to come around, and they don't seem to be to concerned about us humans.

    Frank, I'm practicing and studying a few of the insights you gave me on the D2H, getting ready for my trip to Merritt Island next month.

    I'm sure that you are flying to Merritt, but if you get the chance to stop by here while you are at this end of the country, give me a heads up and we can go shoot GBH's. :smile:
  8. Louie this would make a very nice print to hang on a wall. The colors are great.
  9. Thanks Jim, I might try doing a print. If I'm back this Sunday from Eastern Washington maybe I'll see you at Juanita, if it's not raining.

    Frank, I'd love to stop by, but my wife has this trip all planned out. In fact, I'm not sure how I managed to steal a couple of days out for Merritt Island and Viera. I'm almost positive that I told my wife, it's the relatives and the birds not the relatives are for the birds. Oh well.

    I'm sure looking forward to visiting those areas.

    Well, if not this time, just make sure that you put in a day or two on the schedule the next time you are on the right coast. :smile:
