Finally A Wildlife Photography Trip...

Wow! I finally got a wildlife photography trip in to SNP. This is my first wildlife trip since the whitetail rut last November at SNP. Normally I would have been to Elk country a couple of times and SNP three or four times since then. I have been following along on everyone's blogs and usually do not miss a day, I am just doing so while working overtime or something else on my Ipad so commenting is not that easy.

Shane and I had a great time as always in SNP with lots of deer including many bucks, a morning coyote and some butterfly's. This was my first chance to use the new Nikon D7000 for wildlife that I got back in February and I am relatively happy with the results. This photo was taken in the big meadow early before the clouds left the morning sun peak through so it was shot at 500 ISO.

More on the trip and our summer to come in other posts, I promise not to be gone for as long this time. And by the way we were both home in time yesterday to take Linda out for our anniversary meal. I can't wait to get out with great people for the Elk and whitetail ruts this year.

Good to see you had time to visit SNP. From the good bucks we seen during our two visits it looks like we may be in for a bumper crop of rutting bucks.

That is one wide 8pt, glad you got some shots of him!

Brad, I was thinking of you and Shane this past week when James and I were up in the Elk County. We saw Willard and Buckwheat but only saw one sizeable bull, an 8x8. He was a beauty and his velvet was hanging all over the place! I hope to see you in September for the rut! How does the D7000 compare to the D300?
