EARLY SUMMER WILDLIFE!

Whitetail Deer

I usually do not post during the week, but I thought some may enjoy some photos I got from one of my game cameras. I only have one set up close to my house, as you will see some of the buildings. I should be able to get my other 3 game cameras set up somewhere in the hills behind my place soon. I cropped out a couple to try and get a better view, although some of the clarity decreased.

The first few are some bucks (whitetail deer), and their antlers are just starting to grow in. The shed them very early Spring. They will continue to grow back during the Summer. The males or bucks tend to group together during Spring and Summer. When Fall approaches they will become more solitary. Most of the time older ones will stay off by themselves during this time.

I found the following information on game cameras at www.dickssportinggoods.com:

"A trail camera is ideal for tracking large and small game including deer, bears, turkey and more. Game and trail cameras use heat-sensing technology to detect game in the wilderness..."

This next couple of photos are of a doe (whitetail deer). Some of the younger does will stay together for the year. A lone does is usually pregnant and stay solitaire until their young gets older, which is usually well into the Fall months:

I had one of my game cameras set to take photographs instead of videos. When I get all of them set up some I will have set to just take photos and some to take videos, so I have a nice selection of both to choose from.

Recently someone asked for wildlife photos so these are the first I have gotten. The game camera is set to run automatically. The quality is not the same as my Canon.

I thought this may be a nice change of pace. I will be posting again on Saturday like I always do. I trust you will appreciate these photos.

Wow really photography and great experience . so beautiful animals
Thanks @r2cornell
Have a great day

·

Thank you!

There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.

·

Thank you for your comment

Beautiful captures of whitetail deer . Namaste sir .

·

Nameste!

·
·

I am new join steemit. Please check my blog

Nice Shot and good wildlife photography thanks

·

Thank you.

Hi in my country colombia the wildlife it's too common in USA where you can find big animals as bears how you control that, i mean how you can live respeting the animals because in that photos i can see houses and willife near to them. Regards

·

Yes you have to watch out for some wildlife. Bears tend to stay in the hills and are seldom seen. The big animal that you have to be careful of is Moose. They will come in close to house. You must respect them because they can be very big. Deer are more of a nuisance, because they will eat your garden and even flowers close to house. One year I had them walk into my greenhouse and help themselves to tomatoes.

·
·

Good morning sir
Great comment sir.
Best of luck..

Just recently I took a picture of this beautiful doe. She was kind of watching us. She had beautiful eyes. You could sense she wasn’t afraid. Perhaps, because she felt respect from us.

Just feeling of you being surrounded by these beautiful animals is amazing. Your pictures look great!

·

Very nice. In the Fall when I spend a lot of time in the forest I will have them walk within a few paces of me, but I do not have the time now so the game cameras or trail cameras are nice. I am also playing with my telephoto (500 mm) lens which could provide me with some interesting opportunities.

·
·

Welcome sir.
Your photography and animals I appreciate it.

Wow! FAntastic setup @r2cornell, I'm impressed. The first two pictures are kinda scary due to the eyes of deer, but still attractive too.
Here i will not say wonderful photography :p because you didn't capture them, they automatically are being captured. :p

·

Thank you. Yes but using this type of camera it is automatic, but there is a better chance of getting a closeup.

·
·

Yes you are right, you get close shots of deer

whether it's your pet @r2cornell

STC_0007-b.JPG

·

Not a pet. I keep a tub of water available for the dry months. These are all wild animals...

·
·

wow ... so impressed, they will definitely be back on his next tun

Namsate sir, you take awesome pics of deer.
Thanks for sharing .

·

Thank you.

·
·

please see my post @r2cornell

@r2cornell, Well explained about whitetail deer and nice photo clicks took very closely to them. Tremendous effort.
Namaste.

·

Thanks you. The nice thing about the game cameras is you tie them to a tree and they are triggered when something comes by.

Most adorable photography collections of wild lifers. They have powerful eyes at night time. Waiting enemies every-time.

·

Thank you.

·

Thank you!

The conversion of land adjacent to the northern Rockies into agriculture use and partial clear-cutting of coniferous trees (resulting in widespread deciduous vegetation) has been favorable to the white-tailed deer and has pushed its distribution to as far north as Fort St. John, British Columbia. Populations of deer around the Great Lakes have also expanded their range northwards, due to conversion of land to agricultural uses favoring more deciduous vegetation, and local caribou and moose populations. The westernmost population of the species, known as the Columbian white-tailed deer, once was widespread in the mixed forests along the Willamette and Cowlitz River valleys of western Oregon and southwestern Washington, but today its numbers have been considerably reduced, and it is classified as near-threatened.

great photography...
thank you @r2cornel sir

Thank you my friend

Very nice Photography to be enjoyed. I like it animals. I appreciate your photography.

·

Thank you. And thank you for visiting my blog

Picture of animals are always special.... but it’s sad that 23 dear subspecies of deer are listed as endangered and are disappearing from the world. And in our country it’s more worse

·

Thank you! Yes in some areas of the world the deer are disappearing. We do not have that problem. First there is a lot of forest and mountains terrain. Second as human population has grown there are even more deer due them feeding in farmers fields and peoples yards/gardens. There are some residential areas where they are a major nuisance.

Very nice to be enjoyed. You photograph with the ability of extraordinary. Very beautiful! Thanks Sir!

·

Thank you

Oh thats really crazy,sir you are really a good photographer.i also like wild life photography But i dont have any camera.Sir thanks for sharing thats kind of content.

Beautiful pictures of wildlife. Wildlife photography is my passion but I have never really got the chance.
Will grab every opportunity that comes in way.

·

Thank you. Glad you like wildlife. I have some photos of ducklings I took yesterday but have not sorted through all my photos that I took.

Wonderful photographs sir you have really came up with something special.

·

Thank you very much.

Geez! Very pamper the eyes. I think, your ability in photographing no doubt.

·

Thank you

·
·

Most welcome to steemit @r2cornell
Amazing your animals photography.

This is awesome work sir how did you manage to take this pictures,night mode.

·

Thank you! I have a few cameras that are called game cameras or trail cameras. I set them up and leave them and then they are motion and heat sensitive. Depending on settings I can have photos taken or short video clips. If you have time to go to some of my post last October and November there are a few with video clips of both deer and elk.

Nice, thank you for sharing! Love tracking the wildlife near my house.

·

Thank you for visiting my blog. Yes it is fun watching wildlife, especially when they come so close to my house.

What an awesome gallery sir this is why we love you a lot.

·

Thank you. And thank you for visiting my blog.

@r2cornell wow amazing post. Thank you for sharing my Friend

Oh wow...lot of Whitetail deers come to garden and very near to houses. Deers like to live in forest areas. But I first time see this scene. Just awesome.

·

We have forest all around us so a lot of deer. The older bucks tend to stay in the forested hills behind my place. They will go to higher elevation until Fall.

Surprised to see your post containing wildlife photos instead of the flowers and plants! :D

I am impressed by your skills, you are good at using stealth cam as well as your telescope. Very well captured.

·

Thank you. More flower photos and gardening photographs coming. I had some nice deer photos so I thought it would be a nice change of pace.

These photos are like a surprise gift, and you're very lucky to live on such a beautiful place very close to nature and wildlife.
Hopefully you'll get chance to Capture bear's someday 😝 and when you're gonna try trail camera???

·

I hope to get the other cameras set up soon. I am hoping to get a lot of different wildlife photos. It would be nice to get photos of the young ones which should start being born soon. Than you for visiting my blog

I think white deer is not so common, they are rare.
Yes you are right, Game cameras are the best, i can see that, they captured images perfectly.

·

There are a lot of them around us. In the fall I hunt them and have meat for the winter months. I always plant extra in the garden because they will help themselves. It gets so dry I keep the tub of water for them. I also have salt and another mineral block to help their health.

The best images are the ones that retain their strength and impact over the years, regardless of the number of times they are viewed.

·

Thank you for visiting my blog!

I haven't seen a whitetail deer before. I will share you the baby deer's photos who are caged near my work place.

The quality is really not so good as your other camera. But at least it is giving a visible look.

I think there may be some features present in your camera to enhance the light and brightness. Did you check its settings?

·

Thank you. I am still playing with settings. When there is not much light then it uses infrared.

I think that emotional content is an image’s most important element, regardless of the photographic technique. Much of the work I see these days lacks the emotional impact to draw a reaction from viewers, or remain in their hearts.

The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words,and your pictures are doing just that.

·

Thank you. Great point.

I think I remember these shots in your previous posts where you did share wild videos on Dropbox. Literally you have courage to shoot such wildly animals.

·

Yes I am using same camera, but changed the settings to take photographs instead of video clips. When I put out the rest of my game cameras I will set a couple for photos only and a couple for video clips. Thank you for visiting my blog.

·
·

Thank you for the beautiful blog. :)

·

Thank you Ikra

Really something those creatures.

Thank you for visiting my blog

You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved

·

Thank you

I was expecting a post full of flowers, but it is something change, Can i know how much it cost you to setup these Game cameras, I think they are the best.

·

I paid about $100 for the first one then they went on sale and I bought two more. A friend bought one and could not figure out how to set it up so sold it to my at 1/2 price. I used my profits last Fall when cryptocurrencies were booming. If you go back to posts I made last October and November there should be some that have links to video clips of both deer and Elk.

·

I took over 200 photos of flowers yesterday so there will be more coming.

A good photograph is knowing where to stand.so he can captured each perfect moment.it's one of them.

·

Thank you for visiting my blog

wonderful photography, deer looks very beautiful in the darkness and this background area is amazing.

·

Thank you.

So beautiful. Really looking so nice. Thanks for sharing your experience with all.

·

Thank you

So adorable. Deer is the most lovely creature in the world. I impressed with your amazing photography. Have a nice day sir @r2cornell.

·

Thank you!

Thanks for the post :-) I prepared a few facts about white-tailed deer:

  1. Only male deer grow antlers, which are shed each year. In rare cases, female whitetail deer can grow antlers due to abnormally high levels of testosterone.
  2. A whitetail deer can run at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour, and swim at speeds of up to 13 miles per hour.
  3. They love to eat acorns, grasses, leaves, crops like soybeans and corn, berries, twigs, fungi, fruit, and nuts.
  4. "White-tailed" refers to the white underside of the deer's tail, which it displays and wags when it senses danger.
  5. A young deer is called a fawn. An adult male deer is called a buck. The female is called a doe.

Wow amazing shots. its really sharing

Wow!Excellent photography.You are really creative photographer. Please stay with photography. how the beautiful natural view is! Very color full also.

·

Thank you! I enjoy photography. It is a great hobby!

During the night, a different light comes out in the eyes of the animal bird. I am very much scared to see this.

·

It is the reflection. Of the infrared when camera takes the photo. Thank you for visiting my blog
