rOckstarr; the lighting on the first one is absolutely beautiful!
Thanks. It was all pure luck and coincidental timing that I found them.

Nice photos r0ckstarr, I really like the first one. That is a great capture. One the deer see you there are usually gone.[COLOR="Silver"]
Thanks.

Yeah! As soon as they see you, they up and disappear!

For an illusive animal like this is; I think it's a great photo; I love the area around him, accenting him.
Thanks!

When I took one more step, he dove into the den.

While on a hike several days ago, we spotted a small animal at the edge of ice-covered water, slinking along a few rocks - a mink in its natural habitat. Mink are not overly rare in the Ottawa valley region, but they are wary animals and tend to avoid humans. This guy poked its head out of the den to keep an eye on me.

Not a great photo, but I'm happy that I got anything. We returned a while later, hoping that our friend would be standing on the rock, full body exposed. No such luck!

Pentax DA* 300/4. 50% crop.

If you're interested, a short description of the mink may be found at:
Mink - Ducks Unlimited Canada

- Craig


I have a guy like that who lives down at our dog's swimming hole. With two photographers in the family, we've never got an image of him. You're doing good.

anyone have any ideas about how to go about getting some better images?
Over here they are considered an introduced feral pest...... so normally a 222 or 12 gauge...... before the considered photo!

Probally not much help am I?

Some Snowys

All taken with the DA*300mm.







And, just to see if you are paying attention, a Forster's Tern. Just missed the shot but those guys are so darn fast.

Where in Ottawa did you find this guy? I may try and see if I have any luck seeing it.

No need to apologise. We all get words like these (homonyms) mixed up: effect/affect; aural/oral; compliment/complement; etc

Yes, spelling also. Apologize vs apologise; depending on the Country.

Now back to those great 300+ photos!

April 1st news flash for my favorite French photo mag ...

Chasseur d'Images - L'édito de Guy-Michel

Le ridicule ne tue pas: suite à la publication de "photos volées", dans la cour de l'Elysée, un député vient de déposer un projet de Loi visant à réglementer l'usage des longues focales en les soumettant à une autorisation de détention, au même titre que les armes à feu!

Translation: Ridicule does not kill : Following the publication of "stolen photos" in the courtyard of the Elysee,
a deputy has filed a draft law regulating the use of long lenses by subjecting them to a holding authorization,
just like firearms !
