Deer - 15 Dec 2015

Dave and I did another outing at Fort Whyte Alive on the 15th. We came across a herd of Deer and were able to get within about 15 feet of them at one point. Dave took numerous photos.

Northern Shovelers - June 2015

A flock of Northern Shovelers rested over at the pond we frequent for about a week. They put on quite a show as they flew to and from the lagoons and around the field. We took numerous photos of their displays. Here are some of the better ones.
The closest they ever came to us was about 40 feet (12 M). Most of the photos were at 100 feet (30 M) or further.

Birds and Beasts from Sept & Deer from Dec 1 2015

Brown Headed Cowbird. The day before there was a flock of about 20 Cowbirds feeding at the head of the herd but lighting was bad and I wasn't able to get a usable photo.

A few of the small herd of cattle that seemed to come to the pond and scare off the birds whenever we were taking photos.

Deer captured by my friend Dave with a tiny Panasonic pocket camera. Deer was about 30 feet away.
