Snow Shots



Well, hello deer! She was just a few feet from the road, so I stopped and took her portrait.









This lil guy wasn't as accomodating, so I left him alone.







This 8 pointer still had a few ladies hanging around, just out of frame.







Winter's christmas ornament adorned with snow.







The Playboy logo. I'm hoping a screech owl might find it attractive in the future.

The deer portrait is outstanding! When I opened your blog ...it almost felt like the deer was alive and in my room! Wow! You need to frame that baby! Love the bucks, too (as always). Did you actually say 'hello' to that doe? I do that a lot and know if someone hears me they will think I have 'lost it'.
I'm always amazed at the amount of hornet nests there are when the leaves fall - cool shot. And the playboy bunny hole is a creative catch - would love to see a screech peeking out!

The first portrait of the deer is absolutely beautiful. I live in the suburbs so photographing wildlife is limited to squirrels and a few birds for me. Your photos are great.

Hannibal Rules! Always the best shots and most creative finds.

Come on and tell the truth. How long did it take you to carve that bunny? LOL

Good stuff Hannibal,
Craig

There's nothing like opening a blog and there face to face and in living color is a doe looking back! It was more like a window! Well....hello to you too. Loved it and the buck and the playboy bunny 'hole' is priceless. Great finds!

That first photo just blew me away! That should be framed, on a greeting card, or painted or all of the above! I loved the soft snow on that sweet deer's face.
LOL about the bunny logo on the tree! Maybe the owls will think it's a good place to romance!

The doe with snow on her face is gorgeous!

My sister has a christmas ornament hanging in her yard too and is waiting for the wind to blow it down...aren't they beautiful! That first shot is wonderful and I can count the snow flakes in it!

Marsha said...

I agree with everyone else, that doe shot is one of the best deer portraits I have ever seen. Her eyes look like they are alive and not on a computer screen.

The bunny hole is just too funny!
