Mr. Antlers

I have been taking photos of the deer in Tom Sawyer State Park for years, yet I have never seen, let alone photographed, a Buck with a set of antlers. I have heard them snort before but never actually saw one. Earlier in the day today I played hide-n-seek with this one and got several photos with various branches and sticks in the way but I was happy with them because you could clearly see that it was a buck. Then, as I was leaving, he came right out in the open and seemed to actually want to be photographed. I started out about 100 yards away and slowly made my way toward him, stopping every several yards to get closer and closer photos. Then he just walked away.

Just look at the neck on this guy!

The Family

The next time I'm at Cave Hill Cemetery, I will have to endeavor to get the name of this family who I thought made a great subject in black and white.

Red-shouldered Hawk

When this guy flew past my head, I thought it was a flying barrel. I really thought it was an owl because it was so large.

Deer Party

This week I went to Tom Sawyer State Park and found more deer there than usual... I think there were actually more deer in the park than squirrels that day. (For some reason, posthaven [the host] is stripping the color info out of my photos! It doesn't happen immediately, but seems to happen if I come back in to edit the post. This will mark the third time that I've deleted and reuploaded the photos. This might be a good reason to look elsewhere for hosting...) Figured it out.. Apparently something in the process doesn't like the ProPhoto RGB colorspace.

Hot Deer

It was really hot in the park this day. Hot enough that the local deer all knew to stay in the shade.

June Jaunt

The other day I went for a quick walk in Tom Sawyer Park with my camera. It was the first time in the park, with my camera, since winter. I was concerned that, with the vegetation as thick as it was, I was going to have to stay on the main paths. Typically, all of the animal activity happens off of the beaten paths so I figured there wouldn't be many photo ops this day. Turns out I was wrong as I kept running into unsuspecting deer and even a small group of turkeys.

Winter Afternoon

The frozen scene outside of the UPS Air Group headquarters in Louisville, KY. The ice-coated trees only lasted one more day after this shot. Shot through a dirty window with an iPhone 4S and edited on an iPad with Handy Photo.

Ice Bird Clef

I saw this while walking in Tom Sawyer Park, Louisville, KY yesterday. It reminds me of a bird combined with music notation's G-clef.
