Wow! post number 800 already and next week will be the third anniversary of the blog. It is hard to believe that I have been doing this that long but it is harder for me to believe that I will do it another three years. My last post featured Elk in velvet, whitetails are another mammal that grows antlers with velvet. My last trip to photograph whitetails was in June around the same time as my last Elk trip. They were both photographed at different times of the day, the first as the sun came up and the last as the sun was about to set leaving me with little light for action. I photographed some bucks but more importantly I photographed numerous fawns. With the way my job has been lately I really need this relief from it. When I observe and spend time with wildlife all my worries just go away, I am relaxed and having fun. I have a two day trip coming up right after the Elk rut to SNP to watch deer and get me primed for the whitetail rut. Now to get the week off in early November to enjoy the rut this year in SNP.
Please visit Shane's blog again today for a new post. He is working hard to keep it up with school starting again (first year in high school and lots of homework), scouts, bowling and a part time job. He is a fine young man and I am very proud of him.
