Run For It!

As you may know from my last post I was out on a little country drive on Friday. While I was driving I noticed a group of Elk & Deers on the side of the road up a hill, however they were to far to get a good picture, since the longest focal length lens I had on me was a Canon 70-300mm DO IS. Then about 50 yards down the road on the other side I noticed another group of Elk/Deer grazing a lot closer and to top it off there was a place for me to pull over! I quickly pulled in and grabbed my camera which was sitting on the seat next to me, jumped out and started shooting. I started whistling at them in the hopes to get a little action out of them. One of the deer didn’t like the whistling much at all and started running for it! The next thing I knew they were all bouncing across the field toward the fence, and once they got there they just started leaping over it like it was nothing! Amazing, to say the least. I grabbed a few more shots as they ran up the hill to joint their pals and then I hopped back in my car and drove back to the city. Sometimes living in Canada aint all that bad ;).

  1. Apparently the Farmer is putting some corn down for them which is great, The Bull Elk jumping the fence is a super action shot. Hell, I’ve got more snow on the ground here in Ohio than you do there. Enjoy your photography.

  2. wow! I wish to see such beauty myself! you’re so lucky to be a part of this wonderful Mother Nature show. And it’s great that you managed to get such a great shot of the deers jumping!

  3. Great shots. Am surprised, however, that a whistle would startle the head honcho so easily. You must have put some force behind it to get them to stop eating much needed food in the dead of winter.
