The Buck Stopped Here

Not all that exciting but I don’t usually see the bucks all that often at the Ridgefield NWR.  In fact, as I drove across the entrance bridge to the refuge this morning at 5:30 a.m. (July 10, 2015), I was greeted by a Black-tailed doe and her two fawns (as if to welcome me ... Continue Reading

Doe a deer, a fly-covered deer

This Black-tailed doe was just off the road heading down the bank.  With the flies covering her, she reminds me of myself when I visited the Mt. Hood National Forest a few weeks back, shooting Mountain Bluebirds.  My Bug Shirt really saved the day!   Canon 5D Mark III, 1/1250, ... Continue Reading

Today’s shots are from Nov. 4th, 2013, when the weather was gray, cloudy, and showery.  I’m using a mixture of focal lengths today–some 500mm, 700mm, and 1000mm.  At the end of the day, it got dark very early due to the thick cloud cover and I tried some high ... Continue Reading

Today, Nov. 3rd, is my first Sunday visit ever to the Ridgefield NWR.  So much was going on at home this week I wasn’t able to get here on a weekday.  I usually avoid weekends since there are usually more cars here.  Today was a pretty busy day and the cloudy, showery we ... Continue Reading

Black-tailed Deer Fawn Portrait

While driving the 4-mile auto tour at Ridgefield NWR, Sep. 9, 2013, I came across a group of three Black-tailed Deer just off the side of the road–a doe and two fawns.  Initially, the fawns were about 50 feet away, but the more I snapped their pictures, the more curious th ... Continue Reading
