This young buck was standing in an opening in the forest grazing with four females, his horns indicates that he is between 8-10 months old. He was the only one not running away when i took a couple pictures of him. He has an unusually pale coat compared to other bucks in the area. I hope to see more of this beautiful buck during the fall and winter.
Apparently one of my photos taken yesterday made it into the Flickr Explore category. This is a category where viewers can see the most interesting 500 photos each day. I was really surprised and wondered in what way is this picture more interesting than others? Turns out that it has something to do with Flickr´s own photo-algorithms like views, comments, tags and if people favorites the photo. It was fun to be recognized but it wont turn me into a megalomaniac. 😉
Oh deer, here is the photo. #453 fallow deer in fog.
I want you to meet the youngest kid in the family. This is Sigge, a 14 month young cat we don´t really know why he is called Sigge but my wife likes it better than my first suggestion. There´s a small white spot on his upper chest, so i wanted to call him Mr.Albino cause of that small spot. I guess Sigge sounds a bit better?
So, today i decided to head out to the woodlands 10 miles away from home, the sun was shining brightly the air was fresh and cold, i could imagine myself getting a lot of nice shots of mother natures wonders. When i arrived at the parking lot i got my gear together and started walking towards the woodland path.
After walking for 5 minutes i notice something in the corner of my eyes, out on the field 100 yards away a fox was hunting for rodents, he walked with his head lowered and checked for noice and movements. I raised my camera, zoomed in on the fox and pressed the shutter. Nothing happened? I checked the camera and it was dead. Oh my GxD, i had left the camera ON the whole night *facepalm* thus the batteries were drained.
I was so angry with myself, but only for a few seconds, i started laughing and said to myself, “you can allways take a picture of it with your phone” 😉
Well, i had no other option than to head back home and charge the batteries, so to cut the story somewhat shorter i drove back to the same place and after 3 calm and nice hours in the woods i started walking towards the car without any shots taken, when i heard a familiar sound high up in a tree, it was a woodpecker hunting for insects.
That one bird made my day, he flew to a smaller tree that was illuminated by the sun and i got to take a couple pictures of it. Now, for me it´s not really that important to get a good picture everytime i head out, but after a somewhat frustrating day, this time i felt really good driving back home. Until i realized that i wont know if they were good until i had “developed” them. 🙂
