A couple of shots of Eagles I took in Alaska.



We happened on around 30 eagles fishing and trying to teach the young the way to fish.

We kept 4 of our grandchildren last night and woke to see a coyote in the lawn. I hurried to get my camera, but he dissapeared around an outbuilding. So I quietly snuck (I know its not a word but I like it) around the corner of the outbuilding with the 4 GC's behind me. All being as quiet as they could be
To my surprise there wasn't a coyote there, but this beatiful deer. I was only about 20' away when she looked right at me and then took off. All I got was rear end shot and one more where she jumped into the ditch.




The grandchildren really enjoyed getting to see the deer so close. The picture is not great, but the moment was.

Great shots, Larry and Tim.
Here is the meal of a bee in a hollihock. Taken near my children's school for the last day before holiday.

Larry,
Love the shots of the eagles.
This thread has some amazing wildlife pictures that have been posted.

We were driving down a residential street in Anchorage (Alaska's largest city) when I was on vacation and I happened to see a moose eating someones bushes.
Sorry about the picture quality but since I was driving my daughter's car the only pictures were taken by Noah (8 years old) using a very inexpensive point and shoot digital camera.
He was sitting in the back seat and they are taken through the windshield.
The moose was about 5' from the car.



You can see a short wooden fence at the bottom of the picture above and the next thing we knew the moose stepped over the fence and into the road.
Unfortunately the camera focused on the crack in my daughter's windshield.
But the moose is now directly in front of the car.



The moose then crossed the street stopping all traffic and proceeded to walk down the street on the grass.

While walking in the woods today I stumbled on to this beauty.

This was taken with a 300mm lens, hand held. Unlike other camera manufacturers, Pentax has image stabilization built into the camera so no need to buy the more expensive long lenses with built in stabilization.

Headed down the road to 'Capital City' yesterday I noticed several animals in the wheat field:



Off to the rear of the photo I could see the racks of two rather sizable buck deer. One bent down in the shadow, the other quite visible:



Closer I saw a trio of deer, a pair of 'spike horn' bucks, and a very large buck;



Closer look at the big boy:




Just a note of interest, these shots are all cropped from the same image. The Big Buck closest to the camera, bounding away, was standing in full profile as I drove up but spooked as I stopped the car and took a second to roll down the window and fire up the digital camera. I've never seen 5 bucks in the same place at one time, in the wild, ever in my life.

Karl,

That will be an impressive rack when the velvet drops off!

I think this is the same doe I saw the other day. This time she allowed me to get much closer. I think she likes me...I told her my name was Buck!!!

I spent five years on an island called Ile de Ré, where holy hocks were everywhere. Walking in the narrow streets with white one story houses, green shutters and these beautiful flowers all along the walls was not very far from living in paradise.
