I'm loving these shots guys :D

As much as I like where I live the wildlife is around on what may be best described as 'a smaller scale'.

It's nice to log on and see great shots from other parts of the World :D

Pulled a stalk on this big guy in the first 3.
By time I got there it was quite dark and had to crank the ISO up so I got some noise.
He was nowhere near where he is in the pics when I started out but when I stepped out of the woods ...there he was,not sure which of us was more surprised.
He's quite a deer being that developed this early!!
I doubt I'll get a second chance at him any where near that spot again.

Kpr, that is going to be one heck of a buck! Hopefully you will get a picture of him once he has hard antler on his head.

I really like the second from the bottom picture.

I believe this is the same guy from last year Dete.
This wasn't taken too far from the spot the other evening.
Here he was hearing a momma bear and cub approaching behind him,these taken from the vehichle at a much greater distance and cropped alot more.
He's a huge deer @ probably 300lbs in these pics.
Love to see him with hard horns and his neck swelled some from fighting!!

The mom and cub...again lots of noise :roll:
I'm hoping a body upgrade will help with that in the near future (K7)

From the looks of last years pictures and this year I would guess that he is about 3.5 to 4.5 years old. He is just hitting his prime, no sway back or overly sagging belly. What a wonderful looking whitetail!

Had to put one in here for August!

I took this a couple of nights ago just after sunset to see what my new lens would do.

Caught this guy somewhere in Jasper. It was a cloudy rainy day with constant light rain but I am enjoying shooting in the rain more and more. It adds a mood to the image I'm really enjoying at this time... especially in the second last image.

I first encountered him feeding along a narrow trail but shortly thereafter he moved across the little channel of water seen in pic 1 onto a small island point seen in pic 3. In pic 5 he was swimming across the main lake body to reach the far shore.

Although the occassional light rain will have little effect on your camera always try and protect your camera as much as possible when in adverse conditions. I know several photographers who have lost bodies due to moisture and I almost lost a lens due to sand getting into it while out in the badlands of southern Alberta a while ago.

Great captures! Never saw a swimming deer before. Though I rarely see deer at all to be honest.

thanks guys... Max.. its a national park... the animals react like urban wildlife for the most part.. there is little if any fear of humans amoungst the herbavour population.

I managed to make it to waterton national park as well this past summer. The bears there are the same way... little if any fear of humans... all we do at best is annoy them.

In between all the projects i had this summer one of my personal things I wanted to accomplish was to complete my drive of the rockies from the USA/Canadian boarder all the way to the Yukon and to the Arctic ocean. I did manage to finish that by hitting up the Waterton region as well as a small part of the range in the yukon.

Ill post pics of the bears and a few other special catches I managed when I get to that part of the summer. Unfortunately I have a lot of editing to do for the assignments i was on this summer but will post them as they come around.

Just like the grey kangaroos hanging around the green lawns at work. They are so used to people and largely ignore you, if you give them a bit of space.
Haven`t photographed them, mainly because they only come out in the dark and I don`t normally take the camera to work.

I can see that I need to visit Canada one day.

Seen these 2 mule deer fawns just outside of waterton national park in Alberta. They were so far away when I drove by them that I had to take a pic to make out they were fawns (first pic). I then realised that due to the hieght of the river bank on one side I could probably make an approach without being seen which would put me in pretty close proximity to them if I could judge my pop up point correctly. When I got close I realised just how young they were and that mom was no where to be seen. They did seem healthy however.... by the time I had gotten to them.. bout a 1 km hike.. it had clouded over...
