I think I like summer better...
Posted By: Tom Lusk, 01-03-2008, 06:20 PM

In the summer you get some really colourful BG's:

but in the winter, nearly everything is dull:

I think the doe likes summer better too.

Nice shots Tom. I like the Does' ears - one turned forward toward you and the other cranked backwards toward another sound.

Well it wouldn't be a winter shot if it had a colourful background, now would it? Next time get the deer to stand in front of a red barn!

Excellent 'De Niro" pose on the doe (aka: You talking to me ??) You could not have framed that any better.

oooh, winter camo!

Quite a winner. That's gotta be a lot of effort to get yourself out there in the places you need to be to get those wonderful captures...

Great shots! At least you get enough snow to add a little color to your shots. Down here we hardly ever get enough snow to take pictures in it. Everything just turns dull brown with almost no contrast. I'll post a shot or 2 later so you will know what I mean. Still haven't foud any decent bucks lately. I think they are feeding only at night (guess I need iso 60,000 for moon light shots. LOL)

Two gorgeous photos Tom, thanks for posting them. The doe is a classic but I love that bird shot. I think the doe shot would be even better with a little less blue?

Take care, Heinrich

Only you can take shots with such expression. Beautiful even with winter scenes.

Two great shots Tom and I like the doe's makeup for her portrait.
